2017 Gala


On October 17, 400 friends, allies, and supporters of the NYIC gathered to celebrate 30 years of fighting for New York's immigrant communities. Thank you so much for making our gala a huge success!

And congratulations again to our honorees - Preet Bharara, Maria Elena Durazo, and the Arab American Association of New York!

In case you missed it - check out highlights from last night below!


Former US Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara accepts his Special Achievement Award from the NYIC.


UNITE HERE's Maria Elena Durazo speaks about the importance of worker and immigrant rights in her acceptance speech.


The Voice finalist Wé McDonaldperforms "Huddled Masses," a song based on Emma Lazarus' "New Colossus" from Liberty the Musical.


Our 2017 Member of the Year, the Arab American Association of New York, poses with their former Executive Director and Women's March Co-Chair Linda Sarsour.

If you couldn't make it, or just want to keep the party going - you can still support the NYIC by making a contribution to our 30th Anniversary Campaign today.

We can only do this work with your help!
