African Communities Together Supports Modernizing New York’s Deceptive Practices Act (GBL § 349) African Communities Together (ACT) applauds Senator Leroy Comrie and Assembly Member Yuh-Line Niou for introducing S2407 and A679, respectively, to modernize the Deceptive Practices Act (GBL § 349) and provide protections against unfair and unlawful acts. Shamefully, the consumer protections that New York currently provides lags behind general business statutes in at least 39 other states.
African Communities Together (ACT) and the City of Refuge Coalition invite you to join us at our third annual World Refugee Day Action on Thursday, June 20, 5:30pm - 8:00pm.
This year, we are calling attention to the prolonged detention of asylum seekers and the deaths of refugee children in U.S. custody, namely the 6 children whose names we know, and calling for a truly humanitarian immigration policy.
Our demands are as follows:
- Defend TPS & DED
- Protect Refugees
- Keep Families Together
- Stop Locking Up Asylum Seekers
We hope to see you there:
Assemble at New York Public Library
42nd Street & 5th Avenue
March to U.N. and Trump World Tower
Rally at Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza
