The group, consisting of educators, law enforcement, clergy, youth advocates and community activists and others determined that Adam Haber is the best candidate for Nassau County and held a community rally for Mr. Haber at the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Peace Park, on the corner of Nassau Road and Uniondale Avenue, the cross roads of the Corridor.  Community Activist Sergio Argueta and Civil Rights Attorney Frederick K.Brewington are a part of the coalition and helped sponsor the rally.

"This is the first event of this kind, wherein the Black and Brown communities that make up the Corridor join in support of a candidate running for County Executive in Nassau", said Sergio Argueta.

"The Corridor Group is seeking the overall betterment of Nassau County and uplifting the quality of life for all of its residents, while uplifting the Corridor", said Brewington.

Dennis Jones and Elmont's Mimi Pierre-Johnson, like many of the speakers pressed home the theme "The Corridor Counts".  Both Jones and Pierre-Johnson spoke of a corridor without borders where Black and Brown brothers and sisters come together for good.

Barbara Powell II with her motherTerenna Williams from D.I.V.A., was elloquent as she spoke from the podium atop the flat bed truck that served as the stage  for the gathering, "... it's not enought to hire residents from the corridor, ... you must respect them ... they know what the corridor need."
