Today, May 1st is a day of solidarity amongst movements throughout the nation: from labor and workers’ rights, to immigrants’ rights, and for NLIRH, reproductive rights and justice! Today we will march in solidarity with friends, colleagues and activists from various social justice movements.
The New York City May 1st Coalition has organized thousands of workers and immigrants from around NYC to march in solidarity against the raids and deportations that are devastating immigrant families across the nation. Thousands will also march to protest the exploitation that has resulted from the passing of NAFTA and to recognize that police brutality and over-policing is adversely impacting all of us, immigrants and non-immigrants alike.
At NLIRH, we always include the perspectives and needs of immigrant Latinas in each of our programs and initiatives. We aim to raise awareness and promote policies that will improve the lives of Latina immigrants in the US. NLIRH believes it is crucial that immigrants’ and women’s rights organizations support fair and just immigration policies that protect the rights of immigrant women.
