  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly  proud  to  commem-
orate the 25th Anniversary of the New York Immigration Coalition; and

to  address  the needs of an increasing immigrant population in New York

change; and
  WHEREAS,  The  New  York Immigration Coalition works to increase civic
participation in  the  immigrant  community,  especially  through  voter
registration and policy advocacy at both the local and state levels; and
  WHEREAS,  In  order  to create leadership opportunities for immigrants
across New York City, the New York Immigration Coalition has  built  and

barriers  and  stigmas  surrounding  the  immigrant  community   through
outreach to the residents of New York City and its policymakers; and
  WHEREAS,  In  order to realize the dream of shared prosperity, the New
York Immigrant Coalition fights for solutions that benefit all Americans
and uphold the dignity of all individuals, and  serves  to  welcome  and
integrate newcomers; and
  WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body that when organiza-
tions  of  such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all  the  citizens  of
this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
