Throughout the past several years, leaders of La Asamblea de Derechos Civiles have fought many battles in the struggle for Emancipation. These battles included our largest civil disobedience yet, a pilgrimage across Iowa to rally for a just comprehensive immigration reform and pathway to citizenship, a national pilgrimage visiting US Representatives in the House Judiciary Committee, and dozens of meetings with the community, as well as elected officials.
As an organization, we fight for justice for immigrant communities. Whether it’s ensuring that transit development benefits Latino communities or ensuring just and affordable housing for low-income communities, we are there to organize, build leadership, and act as a people of faith for the liberation of the immigrant community.
Our leaders undergo transformational growth in their leadership through their own work with the organization and through Asamblea’s own leadership training, as well as leadership trainings hosted by our partner Gamaliel.
‘Emancipation is the transformation of community, society, and the system for the liberation of immigrant people, a people in struggle.”
That struggle for Emancipation continues.
However, in order to succeed in this struggle, we must have the financial resources to sustain our work and organization. Please take a moment to donate here. You can also mail a check to 3805 E. 40th St., Suite 102, Minneapolis, Mn. 55406.
