LIBRE Hosts Community Days Across the U.S.
Bringing the principles of economic freedom to our neighbors through service
(Washington, D.C.) – The LIBRE Initiative (LIBRE), a non-partisan and non-profit national grassroots organization that advocates for the principles of economic freedom in the U.S. Hispanic community, hosted its 2nd series of cross-country "Community Days" this weekend. This series focused on informing our Hispanic neighbors on market-based, employment-driven immigration reform and introduced them to LIBRE's ESTAMOS CONTIGO campaign for immigration reform – which prompts people to send an electronic letter to their legislators in Congress to act this year to reform our broken system.
LIBRE Community Days featured speakers who provided information on the current naturalization process, encouraged Hispanics who are qualified permanent residents to obtain their citizenship status, provided answers to questions on current action taking place in Washington, D.C. for immigration reform, and informational sessions on other topics impacting the lives of Hispanics everywhere.
Daniel Garza, Executive Director of The LIBRE Initiative released the following statement:
"Through LIBRE Community Days, we are providing a valuable service to the Hispanic community with seminars, workshops and experts that offer information and advice on the issues impacting their lives. LIBRE works to be the go-to-source of information to ensure that Hispanics have the facts to make the best decisions for themselves and their families."
