LCLAA Urges our Newly Elected Senate to Serve Justice and Hold Accountable those who Attempted Against our Democracy

LCLAA is hopeful that upon the Senate’s return to The Hill, the newly elected representatives will act immediately to hold accountable all those involved in last week’s shameful events. Our communities are aware of the multiple challenges that lie ahead, from guaranteeing justice is served, to the longer-term task of forging a more inclusive nation for all.

We urge our leaders to come together, to heal the wounds of hate. To pass laws that can advance our communities, and can keep working families healthy and safe amid COVID-19. To pass laws that can keep these same working families together! To pass laws dictated by the moral, humane and decency values sacredly enshrined in our nation’s constitution.

The LCLAA Sí Podemos Fund was created out of the need to expand our nation’s electorate, promote Latino and immigrant workers’ rights, and advance policies that can guarantee the advancement and well being of our communities. We find this endeavor to be critical for the future of Latino and immigrant working families, particularly in the wake of the political climate and polarization that our nation faces.
