Why Is Eric Adams Getting Snubbed by the Black Political Establishment? | Caribbean American Weekly Newspaper

Eric Adams has spent 14 years in office, the last seven as the Brooklyn borough president, and is the leading Black candidate in the New York City mayor’s race. Black voters will likely make up more than 30 percent of the Democratic electorate, but a big question hanging over the Adams campaign — which has raised millions of dollars — is whether he can lock down support from the city’s most powerful Black leaders. Or whether he’s even trying.

What NY’s Ma*****na Legalization Law Means for Immigrants | Caribbean American Weekly Newspaper

The Immigrant Defense Project and fellow advocacy groups like the Drug Policy Alliance and the Start SMART coalition worked with state lawmakers to ensure the act includes a procedure through which immigrants can petition the court to vacate their past conviction in a way that will be recognized as valid under immigration law.

Advocates are cheered by a provision of the newly-passed MRTA law, which will establish a process for immigrant New Yorkers to vacate past ma*****na convictions in court, to ensure past offenses don’t jeopardize their status.

West African Hair Braiding Industry Is Being Destroyed by the Pandemic | Caribbean American Weekly Newspaper

The pandemic has affected immigrants in particular, with one report showing that half of all foreign-born residents have lost work. The hair braiding profession, in particular, has found it especially difficult to recover.
