We invite veterans, family members, and service providers to join us for an informative “Lunch & Learn” talk highlighting the new NYC law, Local Law 119, that will provide the strongest local-level protection against discrimination in the nation for veterans and military service members. Local Law 119 is the result of the advocacy of the NYC Veterans Alliance, whose members originated, drafted, lobbied for, and secured passage of this landmark legislation. Join Alliance staff and members, officials from the NYC Commission on Civil Rights, NYC Department of Veterans’ Services, and other key offices as we: — Explore how the law will be implemented starting on November 18, 2017 — Learn how each of us can help to reach our community to prevent and address discrimination against veterans and military members (including National Guard and Reserve) in housing, employment, and other vital areas of life in NYC. Bring your lunch or enjoy the provided light fare.
