Presentation to Siler City Commissioners

You’re invited to an important meeting with the Siler City Town Commissioners on Monday, April 1 at 7pm sharp.

During the past 2 years, The Hispanic Liaison, in collaboration with the Town of Siler City and many other organizations, have participated in a program of UNC’s Latino Migration Project. The goal was to develop recommendations to the town to improve access to the services and opportunities from the Town of Siler City.

At this meeting, we’ll present our recommendations to the town commissioners. Please join us to learn more and to show your support for our efforts. Spanish interpreting will be provided. Call us at 919-742-1448 if you have any questions.

Liberation Not Deportation

Thank you to all the amazing donors who helped us raised $36,000 to help families impacted by the ICE raids! 

In just one week in February 2019, ICE detained  over 300 immigrants in NC; the majority were from our region.  The fund benefited 19 families in Chatham, Lee, Orange and Durham counties.

The Liberation Not Deportation Fund was a joint effort between The Hispanic Liaison and El Centro Hispano to help families directly impacted by the raids to pay for legal representation. The fee to hire an immigration attorney ranges from $5,000 to $15,000.

If you know someone who needs help with immigration issues,
tell them to call us at
 (919) 742-1448 

A Heartfelt Thank You!

Our heartfeld gratitute to each of the 142 generous donors who responded to our call for help this February. Together, they contributed $13,960 for The Hispanic Liaison to empower the Latinx community and advance the rights of immigrants. 

We are honored for their generosity and solidarity with our community and organization.  As a small organization,  all donations truly makes a difference.

Some updates on our efforts:
  • We are currently helping 15 families impacted by the ICE raids and more are calling for help every week. ICE arrested 297 immigrants across NC in just one week, the majority were detained in our region.
