Is America poised to regularize racism, institutionalize xenophobia, normalize anti-Semitism and mainstream misogyny? Long Island, like our country, has been rapidly diversifying with newcomers of different faiths, nationalities, income-levels, sexualities and points of view. How can we support one another and defend our most vulnerable community members? How can we come together to affirm the importance of diversity and the core American values of fairness and inclusion?
Who We Are
Long Island Together is community of progressives who came together in horror at the nativist shifts of the 2016 election. We seek to affirm diversity and protect vulnerable communities through inter-connected activism. We have broad concerns including issues impacting the environment, immigrants, people of different faiths, women, LGBTQ, racism, disability, social justice and peace.
What We Do
Our focus is on activism. We seek to organize events and create awareness through various media platforms regarding issues which affect various communities in jeopardy. Working together, we can inter-connect communities, raise awareness and stop xenophobia, racism, sexism and the assault on the environment. Check out our Events page to see planned and upcoming actions.
