"Raise Up Your Voice Against Racism" Webinar: Anti-Immigrant/Racism Issues Impacting Latinos in the US

04.04.22 | Advocacy and Action, Immigrant Rights, Racial Justice

    On August 3, 2019, a shooter killed 23 people in El Paso, Texas. His motivation was to fuel an anti-immigrant hatred in the United States. Before his attack he posted an anti-Hispanic, anti-immigrant manifesto that promoted a white supremacist thought on the internet and during the attack he admitted that he targeted "Mexicans". This is one example of the tragic cost of racism for the Latinx communities in this country. This month’s “Raise Up Your Voice Against Racism” webinar will examine the numerous hardships and challenges for the Latinx communities when it comes to racism.

    Enjoy the Conversation/Dialogue on anti-immigrant/racism issues impacting Latinos/as in the USA. Presenters: the Rev.
