WASHINGTON HEIGHTS – Former employees and supporters of the beleaguered non-profit Alianza Dominicana held a rally Thursday calling for the social services organization to be saved.
Miriam Mejia of the Committee of Friends for the Defense of Alianza Dominicana organized the noon rally in front of the nonprofit’s newly built home, the Triangle Building on W. 166th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue.
“Since Alianza opened its doors, it’s been supporting [anything] our neighborhood needs,” she said.
The non-profit was a cornerstone for social services in Northern Manhattan, providing everything from youth employment services to daycare to domestic violence programs.
