The Freeport Trailer

Every human being has an equal, inherent worth and right to dignity.

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.

Bilingual Holiday Cards

The students at Birch School made bilingual beautiful holiday cards in Senora Geltman's Spanish class. The men, many of whom were missing their families during the holiday season, were very touched by the children's thoughtful cards.

Freeport Library

Thank you Freeport Library and the lovely Mary Robinson for welcoming our members and giving a private tour to explain all the wonderful resources the library provides to local residents!

May Day Rally

We attended  a peaceful rally in Freeport on May Day to show solidarity an d support for immigration reform to ensure family unity, paths to citizenship, and protection for the rights of all workers.  We also marched to demonstrate our gratitude to the new Freeport mayor, Robert T. Kennedy, for allowing us to continue operating the trailer, which provides vital services to the day laborers in the Freeport community.

Hare Krisna Temple

The spirit of generosity and love continues with our new friends from the Hare Krisna Temple in Freeport (ISKCON).  Every week they bring meals to the trailer as they are dedicated to giving back to their local community. Food prepared with love is always delicious and appreciated!

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!! 

S.T.R.O.N.G. Youth

Over the school break young members of S.T.R.O.N.G. Youth (pictured above) spent a morning at the trailer. Not only did they learn about our programs & careers in the not for profit sector but also got a first hand account from one of our guys on his incredible story of survival & his migration experience. Hopefully... he will be the author of a best selling book in the future!

Local Organizations

We are pleased to work in partnership with organizations such as: La Fuente, Long Island Jobs for Justice, Long Island Immigrant Alliance, Make the Road New York, Long Island Civic Engagement Table, and The Long Island Federation of Labor to form strong coalitions that support institutional change.

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.  

Peter King Rally

In August of 2013, CoLoKi Inc. co-sponsored an event in Massapequa welcoming back Congressman Peter King to his district, thanking him for his continued leadership on immigration reform and supporting a pathway to citizenship.  The "thank you" rally was followed by a fun, drum-led march to Brady Park for a cultural festival.
