Six thousand signatures
In 14 weeks, our volunteers gathered over 6,000 signatures. With love and joy for the immigrant community of Humboldt, we move forward to discuss our rights to a happy safe life.
Centro del Pueblo has put on over 12 events supporting Dreamers, Families Belong Together, Workers, Students, Local artists.
15% of the population is Latinx
