Service Employees International Union (SEIU)

SEIU’s commitment to building a fair economy, providing workers a voice on the job, fighting for equality, and ensuring that all working people can live with dignity spans its entire 90-year history. SEIU has also made significant contributions to the immigrants’ rights movement. In the current debate over immigration reform, SEIU has devoted an unprecedented amount of resources to mobilize the country, shift the public debate, and engage in legislative advocacy to ensure that aspiring citizens can become full participants in the nation’s society and democracy.

Southern Border Communities Coalition (SBCC)

The Southern Border Communities Coalition was formed in 2011 to promote policies that improve the quality of life in border communities. The coalition has shed light on the alarming human toll of unchecked border militarization, and demanded accountability from what is now the largest law enforcement agency in the country. The coalition also is a critical voice in the current debate over immigration reform, advocating for policies that uphold the fundamental rights of those who live in southern border communities.

La Chamba

Members of La Chamba share a love and respect for the Peruvian pop music known as Chicha. This music’s deep Amazonian groove and psychedelic feel inspired La Chamba to create its own unique blend of the cumbia sound on which Chicha is based. In their music, La Chamba members amplify the working-class Los Angeles community realities that made them who they are into electrifying musical rhythms and social justice messages.
