Saturday, December 12, 2015 at 9:00 am — Location: 76-11 37th Avenue, Suite 204. The Queens Chapter of the Campaign for Fair Latino Representation (CFLR), consisting of local Latin@ organizers, educators, professionals, leaders and, more importantly, community residents will hold a forum to develop a local and City-Wide Progressive Latino Policy Agenda. Latin@s are one-third of the city’s and Queens population, but our policy concerns are often ignored by elected officials and the de Blasio administration.
The CFLR has worked over the last two years for the full inclusion of Latin@s in New York City government. More than 500 volunteers have participated in this massive project. This includes participants from every significant Latin@ community in New York City as well as with ties from Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and other Latin@ countries.
This forum will focus on Housing, Education, Economic Development, Health, Immigration, and Police-Community Relations. Such well known and politically diverse community activists as, Peter Fontanes, Tania Mattos, Diana S. Sanchez, Desiree Claudio Bain, Anthony Miranda will lead the workshop. They will facilitate a process of agenda building that will identify policy solutions to help ensure a Latin@ place in the City’s future. For the first time in NYC history, Latin@s from almost every Latin American country and every walk of life are raising their voices in unity.
THE GOAL IS TO MAKE LATIN@S FULL PARTNERS IN GOVERNING NYC.
