Grant Campus, Brentwood, and Wednesday January 11, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Students will also see theatrical performances by Hauppauge High School and North Babylon High School Theater students and attend workshop sessions by College and community leaders.

“During a time of increased incidents of hate speech and action on Long Island, the country and throughout the world, Unity Day has taken on the responsibility of teaching the hundreds of students who will attend the power that lies in acting with respect for others.
