Exciting Things Are Happening at Long Island WINS!

There are some really exciting things happening at Long Island WINS that we want to update you on!
Coming Next Week: New Report Shows the Vast Economic Contributions of Immigrants to Long Island: $10.6 Billion
On Monday, October 20th, we will be releasing a new study commissioned by The Hagedorn Foundation. The new study by The Center for Social Innovation at Adelphi University, which documents the extraordinary recent changes in Long Island’s immigrant population as a major source of growth. This new report, “Strengthening Long Island: The Economic Contributions of Immigrants to Nassau and Suffolk Counties,” is authored by Adelphi University Professor Mariano Torras and is a follow up to his original report “The Economic Impact of the Hispanic Population on Long Island, New York.” The new study reveals the robust economic and demographic impact Long Island immigrants have on production, employment, new business creation, and government revenues, and strongly suggests that immigrant contributions to Long Island’s economy are likely to continue well into the future.
For those of you who are with media or blog about immigration issues, you can find a link to our Media Advisory and details about our teleconference on Monday here:
