NCLR (National Council of La Raza), Largest National Latino civil Rights and Advocacy Organization

Written by Featured Organization on 02 October 2010.

NCLR President and CEO Janet Murguía to address thousands at historic One Nation Working Together rally at the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday, October 2

Washington, DC
—Exactly one month before Election Day, NCLR (National Council of La Raza), the largest national Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, will join leading human and civil rights organizations, labor unions, students, and religious groups to host a rally on the National Mall in Washington, DC for jobs, justice, and education.

 As a leader of the One Nation Working Together campaign, NCLR President and CEO Janet Murguía will share her vision of a new economy with the diverse crowd, which is expected to draw more than 100,000 people from all 50 states.  The event will also feature Latino talent, including comedian Paul Rodriguez.  The historic gathering will take place from noon to 4:30 p.m. EDT on Saturday, October 2.

 

“One Nation Working Together is a movement of hardworking Americans who believe it is within our power as a country to build an economy that works for everyone,” said Murguía.  “We are calling on our political leaders to enact commonsense solutions that put America back to work immediately, tackle the foreclosure epidemic, empower consumers, restore fairness to the labor market, and improve wages and conditions for all workers by passing comprehensive immigration reform.”

“We recognize that building a strong, new economy won’t happen without a collective will or leadership and vision.  The energy of the thousands who gather in Washington, DC on October 2 will create momentum leading up to Election Day that will carry through to next year and the next decade.  These moments are the first steps on the road to an economy built on fairness, accountability, and respect for the contributions of all workers,” concluded Murguía.

The One Nation Working Together rally is timely, as new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that 15 million Americans were out of work in September.
