A Visit from Commissioner Salas

We recently had the pleasure of hosting the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) and Commissioner Lorelei Salas on their Community Listening Tour. Over the course of two visits, they visited four of our highest level ESOL classes (65-75 students) to solicit input from them about how the DCA can help them tackle predatory business and workplace practice, comply with laws, build their assets and access financial assistance services. Thank you, Commissioner Salas, and thank you, DCA!

NY Rising Students Share Their Expertise

After nearly one year of learning about how to be prepared for a variety of emergencies one encounters living in NYC, our New York Rising students shared their knowledge about basic preparedness with students in Class W2.  Reviewing the commonalities for a variety of “disasters,” both natural and man-made, the New York Rising students taught the W2 students about the importance of having:

1. An emergency plan in place with which the entire family is familiar.

2. Having two meeting places (one near the home and one at some distance in case the neighborhood is inaccessible).

3. Having a Go-Bag ready for each family member.

4. Keeping emergency supplies on hand and a first aid kit.

5. Knowing from where up-to-the-minute information can be obtained during an emergency.
