June 21, 2012 is the last day to reserve a reduced rate hotel room for the 2012 LCLAA National Convention in Orlando, FL. This year’s national convention will be held at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort on July 25 – 28, 2012, and will provide LCLAA activists with an opportunity to share strategies to advance their members’ top concerns.
“We have routinely seen our issues and concerns embraced by national politicians whose interest fades as soon as Election Day is over,” said Southern Territory GVP Bob Martinez, who also serves as a LCLAA Vice President. “In addition to the assault on the right to organize and collective bargaining rights, we must also address the critical issue of voting rights legislation in many states, which is expressly designed to suppress minority participation.”
As part of its 40th Celebration, LCLAA will also host a series of events including a women’s leadership luncheon, the Montemayor-Barraza Awards Gala as well as important workshops and discussions around key priorities for Latinos and labor, such as: Immigration, Jobs and the Economy, Education, Green Jobs and Climate Change, Issues affecting Latino Workers and Young Workers.
“Anyone who has ever attended a LCLAA Convention knows it is the quintessential event for Latino labor and political activists,” said Western Territory GVP Gary Allen, who also serves as a LCLAA Vice President. “As a political constituency, we are truly a force to be reckoned with and that force is on full display at the LCLAA National Convention.”
