One of our community’s greatest strengths is the rich and diverse backgrounds of all our residents who call Islip their home. We are a melting pot of cultures, religions and languages. To celebrate this, our Town of Islip Unity Council (the rebranded Anti-Bias Task Force) is comprised of community leaders from many backgrounds across the Town including: religious leaders; school officials; hospital officials; non-profit directors, as well as elected officials.
This council meets periodically during the year to discuss how to engage with the community and local leaders in an effort to promote unity and solidarity—not in spite of our differences, but in celebration of them.
Please join Town of Islip Supervisor, Angie Carpenter, the Islip Town Board, and the community, for the Town of Islip Unity Council's inaugural Unity Ceremony, to be hosted at Town Hall West on Friday, January 27th at 12:00 noon.
This gathering will bring together our Town’s community and religious leaders with elected officials—no matter their political affiliation—and it will serve to jumpstart communications on how all can work together for the benefit of everyone.
All are welcome to attend. Please see the flyer below.
