National Latino Congreso

National Latino Congreso 2012
May 17-19, 2012


¿Permisos para 'sin papeles'?
Así como en Arizona y Alabama se han promovido legislaciones que restringen derechos a los inmigrantes sin papeles, en California se estará impulsando una iniciativa que otorgaría permiso de trabajo legal a los indocumentados.

Se trata del "Plan California", una iniciativa que ayer se reveló en el Congreso Latino que se llevó a cabo en el Pitzer College de Claremont, con la cual se estaría desafiando a las leyes federales ante la inacción del Congreso y de la Casa Blanca respecto a la reforma migratoria.

Organize a concurrent session (Panel, Workshop, etc) during the Congreso

We ask for organizations and leaders to take part in the dynamic decision making process by organizing an activity during one or more of spaces that have been designated for concurrent (simultaneous) sessions. This activity could be a panel, workshop/discussion space, book presentation, or other activity related to the overarching themes, and cross-cutting issues of the Congreso.

By hosting a concurrent session, your organization will have the opportunity to lead conversations based on the issue of your organization's choice, take leadership, and promote activities. Concurrent sessions may last up to 90 minutes, and they will take place both in the morning and the afternoon of Friday, May 18. A panel of convening organizations and local host groups will select up to eight sessions for each of the two time slots from all the proposals that are received by the deadline.

The deadline for any submissions is April 15, 2012. For more information on organizing a concurrent session please send us an email at or call us at (877) 683-2908 ext. 7
