"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

La Acción Diferida es una determinación discrecional que aplaza la deportación de un individuo como un ejercicio de la discreción procesal.
