It's All About People Helping People
The Council of Peoples Organization’s (COPO) mission is to assist low income immigrant families, particularly South Asians and Muslims, to reach their full potential as residents of New York City. COPO empowers marginalized communities to advocate for their rights and understand their responsibilities as Americans. It helps to build community relations between Muslim and non-Muslim community groups. It continues to establish connections between the communities and various government agencies
"Empowering low income families to reach their full potential."
"The current executive orders issued by President Trump do not represent American principles. New York is home to people from all over the world. Our diversity is what makes New York City – and America – great. We stand side by side when any of us is threatened. All are entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, without discrimination or bigotry. People of good will across faith, race, and political lines are standing together across America for the true values of this great Nation."
