WHATâ€™S HAPPENING WITH MICAH?
bad news and good news. The bad news is that the LICCâ€™s funding to staff the Mobilized Interfaith Coalition
Against Hunger has come to an end. The good news, however, is that the MICAH Steering Committee has decided to attempt to transition to a volunteer-run
campaign. Many thanks to Catholic Charities for staffing MICAH during its first year, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation
at Shelter Rock for funding the second yearâ€™s staffing, and to the Long Island Community Foundation, the
Presbytery of Long Island, Touro Law Center and all the others who have helped MICAH continue the last half year. Many thanks
also to the Rev. Paul Ratzlaff of the UU Fellowship of Huntington for chairing the MICAH Steering Committee the past year,
to Cristina Notaro of St. Patrick's Church in Huntington for graciously volunteered to chair further MICAH efforts, and
to Neelofer Chaudry for the work she has done as our Advocacy Director.
As part of our transition, the MICAH steering committee is asking each congregation and
faith-based organization to formally re-join the coalition and inviting them to send a representative to the re-formed steering
committee, which will meet on
November 9, at noon at the Presbytery Center in Commack
Please contact Cristina at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
