      may already be in place. It will include breakdowns on specific pending
      bills (e.g. CLEAR Act, Smith Act) and also be a space for participants to
      discuss how new and pending laws affect their work.

      Immigrant Rights, Advocacy, Justice, Peace and Coalition Partners' Meeting
      in Jackson Heights, Queens to Build Collaborative Strategies for New York

      Date and time of meeting: Saturday, March 27, 2004, 10.00 A.M. - 2.00 P.M.

      Place and location: Renaissance Charter School, 35-59 81st Street, Jackson
      Heights, Queens.

      Directions: 7 Train to 82nd St.

      In the recent past, we activist groups and individuals in New York City
      have worked extensively against the rising hate crimes, especially the
      post-September 11th backlash on immigrants. Working daily with bias crime
      victims, community members and leaders, churches, gurdwaras, mosques,
      synagogues and temples, we have organized a number of important
      well-attended, well-publicized response meetings, rallies and vigils. We
      have also participated in discussions with the city's Hate Crimes Task
      Force and New Immigrant Outreach Unit on improving proper identification
      and prosecution of hate crimes, community-police relations and on bias
      crime protection and civil rights education and awareness among newcomer
      and refugee communities.

      In an effort to build a multiethnic, multi-faith long-term coalition of
      immigrants, community leaders, and native-born city residents to address
      all bigotry and violence in the city, New Immigrant Community Empowerment
      (NICE) is inviting you to come to this important meeting on Saturday,
      March 27 (10 A.M. to 2 P.M. - refreshment provided) to begin a dialogue
      and share our knowledge, experience and insight toward the development of
      a comprehensive action plan to combat hate crimes. We hope this will be
      the first of many such conversations in the days to come. We are also
      confident that together, we'll be able to find effective ways to
      challenge, resist and prevent bias crimes in any place or form.

      Please join us in this important bridge-building process. Thank you for
      your active support.

      In solidarity,

      Partha Banerjee, NICE Community Organizer (718)-205-8796,

      Bryan Pu-Folkes, NICE Executive Director (917)-518-8719,
