Can you help immigrants in our community?
For over 22 years, The Hispanic Liaison has been empowering Hispanics to overcome challenges and make their voices heard in our community. We have helped thousands of immigrants and their children adjust to life in the U.S., access the resources they need to prosper, and affirm their rights.
In the face of increased raids and deportations, the demise of DACA, the end of Temporary Protective Status for Nicaraguans and possibly other thousands of Central Americans, our work to empower and protect immigrants is more crucial than ever.
Our main goals are to:
~ Increase access to services and opportunities, individually and collectively
~ Protect and advance the rights of the Hispanic community and other immigrants
~ Encourage civic participation and community engagement
~ Promote an equitable, just and inclusive society for all
The Liaison depends on you to keep our doors open.
Thank you for investing in the future of our community and organization!
