La Lucha Sigue

Last month, more than 400 LatinoJustice leaders and supporters gathered at our Annual Awards Gala the week after the election to honor individuals and institutions helping to advance our mission and to raise critically needed funds to support our legal advocacy, education and community engagement programs.

Make a gift to LatinoJustice this #GivingTuesday

Now, more than ever, LatinoJustice needs your support. With news that Jeff Sessions is the incoming administration’s nominee for U.S. Attorney General, LatinoJustice is gearing up for a greater struggle. Sessions infamously called LatinoJustice an extremist hate group in 2009 during Sonia Sotomayor’s U.S. Supreme Court Justice confirmation process, when citing her service on our Board of Directors. At the time, dozens of allies, like the Hispanic National Bar Association and even then-NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, publicly defended the longtime civil rights work of LatinoJustice.

Remember LatinoJustice PRLDEF tomorrow for #GivingTuesday

Tomorrow as you consider the many organizations you wish to support for Giving Tuesday, we hope you will elevate the work of LatinoJustice. Since 1972, LatinoJustice has fought and won numerous victories defending the rights of Latinos. We’ve stood up to bullies, taken on government and fostered leadership to ensure that every Latino has the opportunity to flourish in the United States.

Giving Thanks and Going Forward

Tomorrow many of us will gather with families to celebrate Thanksgiving Day. This day has long been one to band together with loved ones a to express gratitude for the many blessings in our lives. At LatinoJustice, we are incredibly grateful for the support and dedication of the many individuals who stand beside us as we fight for the civil and human rights of Latinos – and all people – in this country. Particularly now, as hate and exclusion have become normalized by the incoming administration, we gain strength from the thousands of supporters and friends who have expressed their commitment to the struggle for justice and equality.

It Has Begun

News that Kris Kobach has been named to the president-elect's transition team signals that the incoming administration remains committed to its promise to aggressively round up and deport millions of undocumented immigrants, tearing families apart and dashing the dreams of young DREAMers who had anticipated a clear path to citizenship.

Our Resolve Has Not Changed

The result of the presidential election has created much fear, concern and angst in the Latino and broader community. We are already hearing stories of Latinos being harassed by those who now feel more freedom to target our community.
