Adelante Carolinas – Webinar

Wednesday, May 12 @ 10 am (EDT)

 

On Wednesday, May 12th at 10:00 am EST, join Latino business, faith and civic leaders from across the Carolinas for Adelante Carolinas: Latino Businesses for Bipartisan Immigration Solutions – the Dream Act, the SECURE Act, and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act of 2021

Event Co-Chairs:

  • Gris Bailey, President and CEO, Latin American Chamber of Commerce Charlotte (LACCC)
  • José Hernandez-París, Executive Director, Latin American Coalition
  • John Herrera, Vice Chair of the Board, Latino Community Credit Union
  • Evelyn Lugo, President, South Carolina Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
  • Isabela Luján, Co-Founder, Latin American Business Council
  • Pastora Maudia Meléndez, President of the Federation of Christian Churches of North Carolina
  • Jose Oliva, Replacements, Ltd.

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the bipartisan Dream and Promise Act of 2021 and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act with strong bipartisan support. Now, bills are awaiting action in the Senate that would provide much-needed certainty to Dreamers, farm workers, recipients of Temporary Protected Status and their families, as well as ensure a reliable workforce for their employers. These groups have been stuck in legal limbo for years, are already making vital contributions to the Carolinas, and include many members of the Latino community.

Together, we will urge Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC), Richard Burr (R-NC), Tim Scott (R-SC) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to support immediate passage of several bipartisan immigration solutions that recognize the Latino community’s vital, and growing, contributions to the Carolinas: the bipartisan Dream Act of 2021, the SECURE Act, and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act. 

Register here to participate in this event organized by the Carolinas Chapter of the American Business Immigration Coalition (ABIC).

La Cámara de Representantes ya pasó la propuesta de ley Dream and Promise Act of 2021 y Farm Workforce Modernization Act con gran apoyo bipartidista. Ahora, las propuestas están a la espera de que el Senado tome acción, y proveería certidumbre a Dreamers, trabajadores de campo, beneficiarios de Temporary Protected Status (TPS), sus familias, y aseguraría que los empleadores tengan una fuerza laboral confiable. Estos grupos han estado viviendo en limbo por muchos años, a pesar de que hacen contribuciones vitales a las Carolinas. Muchos de ellos son miembros de la comunidad latina.

Juntos, pediremos a los senadores Thom Tillis (R-NC), Richard Burr (R-NC), Tim Scott (R-SC) y Lindsey Graham (R-SC) que apoyen la aprobación inmediata de soluciones migratorias bipartidistas que reconocen las vitales y crecientes contribuciones de los latinos en las Carolinas: el Dream Act Bipartidista del 2021, el SECURE Act, y el Farm Workforce Modernization Act.
