Trabajadoras Awards Luncheon
LCLAA's Trabajadoras Awards Luncheon
March 27, 2012
11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
As the premiere national Latino labor organization that advances social, political and economic justice for Latinos throughout the US and the commonwealth of Puerto Rico, we are very proud of celebrating our 40th anniversary this year.
Our policy platform and educational programs are based on a commitment to high standards in both the quality of the research that forms the foundation of our advocacy work and the estimated impact that changes in government policy will have on the welfare of the Latino community. LCLAA’s fundamental work is based on a three-pronged approach promoting integration through community-building, leadership development, political empowerment and civic participation.
In 2011 LCLAA released “Latino Workers in the United States 2011,” Report in which we highlighted issues affecting Latinos inside and outside of the workplace. The study confirmed that Latino workers face tremendous labor issues and challenges that threaten their prospects for advancement. This year we want to go one step ahead and elaborate on the unique issues affecting Latina workers in particular. This is a matter that requires urgent attention. To enhance LCLAA’s focus on the needs of Latina women in the US, LCLAA launched a campaign entitled Trabajadoras. The mission of this campaign is to raise awareness about how Latina women fare in US society and to improve their state of well-being. This campaign combines research, policy, advocacy, and mobilization around the challenges Latinas face, including a bilingual community and media outreach effort that will empower Latinas with the information and resources that will help them improve their conditions in our workplaces and communities.
We are inviting you to join us as a participant and a sponsor on March 27, 2012, as LCLAA releases “Trabajadoras” a report to raise awareness about Latinas. During this event we will be honoring Leaders in our communities who have broken those barriers and paved the way for working women to have a better quality of life.
