Welcome to the website of the New York State Commission for Social Justice (CSJ), Order Sons of Italy in America (OSIA).  The NYS CSJ is focused on combating defamation of Italians, Italian Americans and other groups.  Our two primary goals are:

  •    To fight bias, bigotry, and defamation of Italians and Italian Americans as well as other groups.

  •    To promote a positive image of Italians and Americans of Italian descent through our programs, our positive image materials such as posters, pamphlets, bookcovers, bookmarks, etc., and our first video-documentary entitled “Italian American Recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor,” a TELLY Award Winner.

    Our website contains information pertaining to the NYS CSJ work in fighting bias, and bigotry and in promoting a positive image of Italian Americans.  We invite you to take advantage of the programs within and encourage your participation, comments and suggestions. 

    Remember - if you are a member of OSIA, you are a member of the CSJ!
