Membership Brochure - Brookhaven Citizens for Peaceful Solutions

Brookhaven Citizens for Peaceful Solutions brochure listing common day laborer myths versus fact, and asking for contributions to support the organization, Farmingville, N.Y., ca. 2000.

An influx of mostly Mexican immigrants, many believed to be undocumented, in Farmingville in the the late 1990s rattled the small town and led to a rash of violence against day laborers. Several community groups, some advocating for immigrants, such as the Brookhaven Citizens for a Peaceful Solution, and some against their presence, such as the Sachem Quality of Life Organization, formed in response to the situation.
