Labor Union Resolution
Statewide organizational sign-on letter
Toy drive on December 16th, for the children of Palermo Pizza workers now in the sixth month of their strike for union recognition
On behalf of the members and staff of Voces de la Frontera, we wish you a safe and peaceful holiday.
We would like to thank you for your support of Voces in another year of struggle, action, and achievement!
Thanks to you, we had some huge victories in 2012:
- We emerged victorious this year in two major civil-rights lawsuits: one to challenge the unjust voter ID law, and the other to rescind the discriminatory state re-districting map.
- ·Nationally, the immigrant rights movement had a major victory in 2012, with the Obama administration responding to grassroots pressure by announcing new measures of relief from deportation for eligible immigrant youth, through the “Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program.
- We supported the courageous efforts of the workers at Palermo’s Pizza, who went on strike in June for union recognition and a voice on the job.
- We increased Latino voter participation in Wisconsin, as part of a national story that has created an opening for federal immigration reform.
These collective efforts, and our effectiveness, have recently made Voces a focus of right-wing media attacks in an effort to defund and marginalize us.
What we do when we’re under attack? We say: “STAND UP, FIGHT BACK!”
Your grassroots donations - at any level - are essential to do this. We ask your help in enabling us to continue to mobilize our members, in what is bound to be a crucial 2013 year, as we escalate our efforts for passage of federal immigration reform and fight to stop the separation of families, which is a daily reality for 1,000 families a day nationally.
As a civil rights organization, we simply can’t do this without you. Your contribution in any amount will have a major impact on our work.
All donations to our c3 organization are fully tax deductible and will apply to your 2012 charitable contributions.
In the coming year, we look forward to making great strides in the fight for immigrant, worker, and student rights!
