NHLA Launches Month of Action: Rally today at the White House

On Thursday, September 14, 2017, Farmworker Justice president Bruce Goldstein will join the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda  (NHLA) for a rally in front of the White House to commence the Hispanic Heritage Month of Action.

The  NHLA,  a coalition of the nation’s 45 preeminent Latino advocacy organizations, is organizing the month of action with the goal of defending Latino and immigrant communities across the country. At the center of these actions is protecting immigrant youth, their families and all immigrants after the Trump administration’s decision to rescind DACA. The NHLA stands in unity with other under attack, including women, African-Americans, Muslims,  the LGBTQ+ community, and workers.

“These times demand that Latino and Latino-serving organizations respond by mobilizing communities to engage more deeply in the civic life of our nation than ever before. Farmworkers and their families feed us and we want to make sure farmworker voices, concerns, and farmworker-driven solutions are lifted up during this month of action, “ said Bruce Goldstein.
