February 2017

With a busy and concerning month for immigrant rights both locally and nationally, El Pueblo worked around the clock to better inform community members of their rights through classes on “Power of Attorney” and how to protect their families in the event of an immigrant raid.  We also visited the NC General Assembly building, where volunteers like Cristina Gonzalez spoke out against anti-immigrant bills like the proposed HB 63.  Through hard work from supporters like yourself, we’ve been able to collect over 900 signatures for a petition to stop this legislation.  You can read all of these stories and more below:
