Loretto’s LACC: Advocating for Human Rights, Racial Justice and Building Community
Loretto’s Latin America/Caribbean Committee (LACC) celebrates Black History Month by honoring the intersection between the Black Lives Matter and immigrant rights movements. Migrants throughout the United States and at the U.S./Mexico border face unique challenges as they struggle to maintain basic human dignity in the face of a degrading and dehumanizing immigration process. This week on Loretto’s Facebook page, LACC will highlight the efforts of several advocates and organizations working with Black migrants at the border to provide food, education and housing. LACC, like all of Loretto, stands in solidarity with our Black neighbors in this fight for justice.
Join LACC for the next Immigration Spotlight, Friday, Feb. 25, at 11 a.m. EST, 9 a.m. MST for updates on the conditions at the U.S./Mexico border. To attend, please request a Zoom invitation through this form. You can also follow LACC on Twitter – @JusticeLACC.
LACC’s members are as follows: Mary Jean Friel CoL, chair; Sally Dunne CoL, Stacy Fitzwater CoL, Maureen Flanigan CoL, Molly Kammien CoL, Rosa Lizarde CoL, Roxanne Monterastelli CoL, Loretto Co-member-in-Process Helen Thorpe and Jillian Severinski, consultant.
