ENYFarms Monthly Meetings
"When we first started looking into community-based planning, we discovered that East New York had the largest number of local gardens in the area. UCC was a primary player in helping us establish a farmers market. Now, with East New York Farms!, we're reaching WIC families with the vegetables and fruits. Other neighborhoods have followed our model and since then we've gotten private and public grants, we've gotten youth programs and food coops out of it."
-- Perry Winston, former Architectural Director, Pratt Center for Community Development

Protecting The East brings the Condom Fairy of East New York back from retirement to distribute condoms and safer sex supplies for the holiday with flare and tulle.
Our distribution route has expanded to 50 different businesses throughout East New York. We provide condoms for barbershops, nail and beauty salons, taxi cab and car services, hardware stores, party supply stores, travel agencies, tax prep sites, electronics stores and mechanic and car repair businesses. We also provide condoms to staff at youth programs, job training sites and shelters. Look for our neon green sign on condom buckets in windows, shelves, on top of cabinets, or ask your favorite barber.
El 15 de Junio del 2012, la Secretaria del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS, por sus siglas en inglés) anunció que ciertas personas que llegaron a los Estados Unidos siendo niños y cumplen ciertos requisitos específicos pueden solicitar ser considerados a la Acción Diferida por un período de dos años, sujeto a renovación, y ser elegibles para la autorización de empleo. La Acción Diferida es una determinación discrecional que aplaza la deportación de un individuo como un ejercicio de la discreción procesal. La Acción Diferida no confiere un estatus legal al individuo.

A Year of Growth and Change
Thank you for another year, for allowing us to be part of East New York and for being, in many ways, part of United Community Centers’ family.
As we approach our 60th birthday, we are reflecting on what UCC means to our members and our community: consistency, continuity, political independence, commitment to community involvement, a family atmosphere, and trust. In a time when many outside organizations are moving into East New York, it is vital to stand up so that UCC’s community members continue to have a place to envision their future.
This has been a year of change for UCC. We welcomed new staff members, saw community members grow up and take on new leadership roles, and were able to begin new programs. We welcomed a new East New York Councilmember, Inez Barron, and look forward to working alongside her to build a stronger community. Two longtime inspiring UCC members, Martin Eisenberg and Steve Faulding, passed, leaving behind a legacy of fighting for social justice.
As we enter a new year, we need our supporters to stand with us so that we can continue to build East New York into a community where families can grow stronger. As you reflect on the past year, please consider the great need that UCC fills in East New York, and make a contribution to bring us forward into the New Year. The UCC family wishes you and your family a peaceful and healthy 2014.
Protecting The East launched a sticker campaign this month raising visibility on HIV in the East New York neighborhood, as well as awareness of our programming. We spent a couple of hours today on Pitkin Avenue using our sticker logo to help decorate street poles, remaining public telephone boxes, and any other public surface we found.
