Community Leaders at NCLR Action Summit Mobilize for Stronger Communities, Stronger America: As part of this week’s Community Leaders Action Summit, Latino advocates, youth and civic leaders from throughout the nation had a clear message for their congressional representatives: End the assault on millions of American families and refuse to fund President Trump’s mass deportation tactics and border wall. During nearly 100 visits with members of Congress, community advocates urged their representatives to stand up for and defend policies that benefit millions of American families. “The NCLR Community Leaders Action Summit was an important and needed gathering of Latino leaders from throughout the nation who have witnessed first-hand how this administration’s cruel deportation policies have hurt families and communities,” said NCLR President and CEO Janet Murguía.
