The country needs a labor secretary and we think Tom Perez is the best man for the job. That’s why today we’re calling on senators to stop the unwarranted attacks and filibuster threats against the president’s nominee. We’re joining our Affiliate, Casa de Maryland, and the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda (NHLA) in a march and a press conference today to make sure we’re heard loud and clear.
Tomorrow, the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions is scheduled to vote on Perez’ nomination and we need your help in making sure those senators know we support him.
To get you started, we’ve included a few tweets and facebook updates you can use.
1 out of 15 members in Obama’s cabinet could be Latino. Help confirm Tom Perez as the new U.S. Secretary of Labor by calling, emailing and tweeting your Senators today! Take action at http://nationalhispanicleadership.org/confirmtom!
With your help, we can make sure Tom Perez receives a fair and speedy confirmation!
