Washington D.C.-Latinas are one of the fastest growing minorities, they comprise an increasingly growing percentage of our nation’s workforce. Despite Latinas playing such a key role in the country’s politics, government, and  businesses they are susceptible to serious and widespread violations of their rights; from earning just 53 cents to the dollar as compared to their white male counterparts— less than any other woman worker— to experiencing rampant sexual harassment and sexual violence in the workplace. Sadly, the violations against Latinas are not contained to one industry, income bracket or sector. Latinas across the board are subject to many of the same reprehensible and unlawful conditions.

LCLAA’s Trabajadoras campaign aims at empowering Latina workers by providing them with the information that they need to improve their working conditions, organizing Latina workers to advance their priorities and lifting up the power and contributions of Latina workers across the country. 

LCLAA has worked with the Women’s March as well as with all its partners and allies, in drafting a list of urgent policy priorities which include: 

Ending Violence Against Women and Femmes

Ending State Violence

Reproductive Rights and Justice

Racial Justice

LGBTQIA+Rights

Economic Justice & Worker’s Rights

Immigrant Rights

Civil Rights & Liberties

Disability Rights

Environmental Justice

With these goals in mind, we are proud to join the Women’s March as we push for social change that is inclusive of these priorities. 

Please join us for a Rally prior to the Women’s March, where Latina members of the Labor and Civil Rights community will gather in defense of their rights as working women! 

WHEN: Saturday, January 19 

TIME: 9 a.m.

WHERE: AFL-CIO Headquarters, located at 815 16thSt NW Washington DC 20006

WHO: Members of the press will have the chance to interview Latina working women who are joining this march in defense of their rights, and a more inclusive agenda.
