National Immigration Forum: The National Immigration Forum is one of the leading immigrant advocacy organizations in the country, with a mission to advocate for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation.

The NYIC promotes immigrants’ full civic participation, fosters their leadership, and provides a unified voice and a vehicle for collective action for New York’s diverse immigrant communities.

Arab American Family Support Center (New York City): The Arab-American Family Support Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-sectarian organization that provides culturally and linguistically sensitive services to immigrant communities throughout New York City.

Immigration Equality is the leading LGBTQ immigrant rights organization in the country. It provide s advice and legal services to thousands of LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants seeking refuge, fair treatment, and freedom in the United States. The work is truly lifesaving because there are nearly 80 countries around the world where it is a crime to be LGBTQ, with consequences up to and including the death penalty.

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND): KIND serves as the leading organization for the protection of children who enter the US immigration system alone and strives to ensure that no such child appears in immigration court without representation. We achieve fundamental fairness through high-quality legal representation and by advancing the child's best interests, safety and well-being.

Thanks Karen! Why I enjoyed some excellent leftovers just before the show thanks to a super new branch of the NJ Szechuan restaurant Chengdu 1 that opened in Jersey City right near the Hoboken border!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/6/19 7:41pm Rob W:

It's true xtina, my obsession with teasing upcoming gigs on this radio show is probably not very therapeutic for FOMO sufferers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 4/6/19 7:44pm chresti:

what is FOMO?

YES it's almost unfair to post so many interesting upcoming events, it makes me almost wish I lived in Brooklyn but honestly prefer Jersey so much more.

wonderful, fun show, Rob -- thank-you!
(been listening while *attempting* to do some Spring cleaning -- just not signed in until now)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/6/19 8:26pm ɨkɛ:

@xtina, I've lived in both, and in terms of events NY is superior but in honestly many other ways I like NJ just as much or more. Especially for food, e.g. Paterson's Middle Eastern cuisine beats Bay Ridge's from what I've tried, and NJ has better Ethiopian (in South Orange) too. Plus, Gelone in Lyndhurst has better Italian than anything I've tried in Brooklyn. Not that I'm an expert on Italian food by any means.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/6/19 8:36pm хtina:

@Ike Yeah NY State schools how I wish I was in on that. BUT NJ has a little of everything good and worthwhile despite its rep. Paterson is a good place for under-represented cuisines. Lots of good Turkish and middle eastern restos and specialty stores.
Avatar Sat. 4/6/19 8:36pm TDK60:

hear here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/6/19 8:37pm Doug in JC:

Chengdu1 looks great, Rob. It's cool how many Chinese places are ditching the old standard menu and coming out with more authentic dishes. I love how terrible their location is too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 4/6/19 8:41pm Blues Mandinga:

Hi @Rob. Do you have listened Bozá from Colombia?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 4/6/19 8:41pm Blues Mandinga:

Bozá "the new gaita".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/6/19 8:44pm ɨkɛ:

Oh I liked Chengdu 1 in Cedar Grove (near Montclair) but that was so long ago that it was when that cinema still existed there.
@xtina, Paterson has good Peruvian too! I had no idea until some friends turned me on to it. There's a whole Peruvian community there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/6/19 8:47pm Doug in JC:

@ike Peru opened an embassy in Paterson because of how many people are there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 4/6/19 8:47pm chresti:

Where are you going, Rob?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/6/19 8:50pm ɨkɛ:

@Doug in JC, holy crap! I had a great tiradito in Paterson once but I don't remember which restaurant.
