In October, the Fiscal Policy Institute released “New Americans on Long Island: A Vital Sixth of the Economy,” a report that detailed the economic contributions made by immigrants in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

The report offers a decisive look at the role that immigrants play as an economic force in the region, and presents a compelling economic case as to why newcomers should be welcomed to Long Island. To help those of you in the advocacy community better understand the data and learn how to integrate it into your work, David Dyssegaard Kallick, the principal author of the report, will offer a free training on February 15 at SUNY Old Westbury.

The two-hour training will prepare you to host your own presentations related to the economic research in the report. It will walk you through how to construct a presentation, how to effectively address your audience, and some basics related to presenting with PowerPoint. Most of all, it will help you feel comfortable talking about economics, whether or not you have previous experience with the subject.

RSVP is mandatory. Please RSVP to Lisa Debourg at 516-333-7331 or A light lunch will be provided to attendees.

We hope to see you there!
