Cabrini Coalition Meeting

Everyone is welcome. Bring snacks and libations and invite friends! The goal for this meeting is to come together as a group, begin to agree on a core mission, and begin blocking out the next year’s efforts.

We meet on Mondays, following in the footsteps of activists like MLK who believed that if you don’t take your Sunday experience and convert it to action on Monday, your faith isn’t bearing fruit. #MoralMonday

ABOUT THE CABRINI COALITION: We are an interfaith coalition focused on supporting immigrants, and particularly immigrant children, in East Harlem. By “supporting” we mean providing moral, material, and informational support. We’re not focused on advocating for policy changes, nor are we overtly political. We are explicitly doing what Jesus asked: Caring for the strangers in our midst.
