CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS
LCLAA advocates for the rights of Latino working families, the equal protection of laws, and political inclusiveness of all. We demand the protection of our voting rights and support the continuation of affirmative action to ensure diversified workplaces and institutions of higher learning.
LCLAA opposes racial profiling and condemns hate crimes. For this reason, LCLAA supports legislation that will provide federal assistance to states, local jurisdictions, and Indian tribes to prosecute hate crimes.
LCLAA opposes legislation that violates individuals' civil rights. LCLAA firmly opposes any legislative initiatives seeking to allow state and local police agencies to enforce immigration law because of the impact they will have on ethnic and racially diverse communities and the adverse effect it will have on local economies.
LCLAA opposes the privatization of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and other efforts to weaken its ability to serve the public.
