LCA STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP'S EXECUTIVE ACTION 1.30.2017
We are looking forward to seeing you at 2019 Latino Legislative Day on March 18th in Olympia. Please review the agenda with details of the event all day. We will be having panel discussions, a march is planned to the capital and we encourage you to bring signs (no sticks allowed in capital). At 12p.m a special program will be held in capital rotunda to recognize 6 individuals for their exceptional and courageous commitment to their communities.
Key note speaker will be Representative Lillian Ortiz-Self, Governor Inslee and Attorney General Ferguson and other legislators are expected to speak. After the program you are encouraged to return to the DSHS building to attend policy sessions that will include a guest speaker, Mark Gonzalez, District Attorney from Corpus Christi to talk about the important role of prosecutors in the criminal justice system. In addition a policy session on immigration detention bonds that could help community members be out on bail until the hearing occurs, but very expensive and people are left in detention. Lastly, a farmworker tribunal will occur at 5p.m in the Columbia room open to the public. In the meantime, please contact your state legislator to advocate before march 18th - to see the bills LCA is supporting or schedule meeting with your legislator click on on buttons next to this message.

LATINO LEGISLATIVE DAY
When you vote you make your voice count. For almost everything you buy in Washington, you pay taxes. While our senators and representatives will decide what the money gets spent out, it's tax payers who will hold them accountable and let them know what matters. Besides voting, there are other ways to participate in civic engagement, even when you are not eligible to vote.
Work with members in your community and make a difference
