Yosselin can continue to fight for asylum

CBS News link

Wonderful news! Yosselin Herrera, the young lady from Siler City who has been fighting for the right to stay in the U.S., will be able to plead for asylum in November. A huge thank you to all the organizations and individuals who are collaborating with The Hispanic Liaison to support Yosselin – SEIRN, United We Dream, National Lawyers Guild, the NC and Chatham NAACP, teachers and students, and Yosselin’s family.

We also wish to thank and recognize the leadership of our elected officials who passed resolutions on her behalf – Chatham County, the towns of Siler City and Pittsboro, and the Chatham School Board. It was an unprecedented and strong show of support for Yosselin and our entire community. We’re SO proud of Chatham County. THANK YOU!!

Support our efforts! Donate today

Thank you, Commissioners!

This is what compassionate and courageous leadership looks like! We are very proud of our Chatham County Commissioners for unanimously approving a bilingual resolution asking the federal authorities to grant Yosselin Herrera’s petition for asylum in the US.

Beyond the crucial and wonderful support for Yosselin, it is a message to all of our community that Chatham Commissioners value and respect us, and are willing to take risks to protect us.

Thank you, Commissioners! Please read the resolution below and send them your thanks and praises.

Find out more about upcoming events in support of Yosselin here.

Stand with us!

We need your help to raise $20,000 for The Hispanic Liaison. We are busy helping our community and have big plans for the future! We’re counting on you to help make The Liaison strong again. Mil gracias!
