Community Integration and Civic Participation
Community integration is an opportunity for the Freeport Trailer to cultivate positive perceptions of day laborers in the community. We encourage the men to get involved in community organizing to foster the development of leadership skills, seek to impart social change, and build power in the Latino and immigrant community. Civic participation allows the men to advocate for themselves on policies and issues that directly impact their lives.

Hare Krisna Temple
Temple Ohav Shalom
Many thanks to the
kids at Temple Ohav Shalom who put together over 80 snack bags with
inspirational drawings and messages for our workers. The goodies were
definitely enjoyed but their show of solidarity with our immigrant
neighbors is truly a beautiful thing!!
Zion Cathedral Church
We believe that it's so important to give back to the community. On November 21, 2013 seven of our workers volunteered and spent the entire day constructing a community garden for a youth program at the Zion Cathedral Church in Freeport.
