Advocacy

Advancing Latinas into Leadership Mentoring Program (ALLMP)  prides itself to advocate for our mentees and community that we represent. There will be times that ALLMP will have to take action. 

ALLMP Takes Action 

Public Comment Re: DACA

ALLMP submitted a comment to DHS/USCIS and DOJ/EOIR in response to the proposed rule issued by the Departments on September 28, 2021 (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals; CIS No. 2691-21; DHS Docket No. USCIS-2021-0006; RIN 1615-AC64).  ALLMP strongly support USCIS’ intent to preserve DACA through this rulemaking, and urge USCIS to take further step to strengthen these protections, which remain unattainable by too many who do not fit rigid categories implemented nearly a decade ago.

Oppose the Eagles Act

ALLMP signed on to a letter organized by the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights to oppose the EAGLES Act of 2021 because of the risk it poses to the safety and wellbeing of children. Threat assessment systems, such as the system advanced in the EAGLES Act, criminalize children, further harm marginalized communities, and interfere with proven and evidence-based efforts to build positive relationships in schools and climates conducive to learning and child wellbeing.
