Our annual BCNA Immigrant Heritage Week Awards ceremony honors outstanding achievements by immigrants and refugees, as the City of New York honors their contributions to New York's culture, community, and economy.
We are very excited to have as a special guest and keynote speaker Aline Sara, co-founder of NaTakallam, an organization which allows current refugees to not only do meaningful work but find community as well. Gregg Bishop, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Small Business Services will also be joining us to present the awards. And business journalist Nina Roberts will lead a conversation about how food businesses often provide the first point of contact for immigrant communities and how those businesses are using digital and social tools to find their communities.
