Reverend Pietri – who was more a dark genius poet than an actual holy man — wrote the ground-breaking “Puerto Rican Obituary,” a book-length poem evoking the harsh realities that Puerto Rican immigrants confronted in the US. In a collaborative effort spearheaded by FEVA (Federation of East Village Artists), former councilwoman Margarita López, The Nuyorican Poets Café, and the merchants, residents and artists of East Third Street, the City of New York will officially renam

source: NCLR NCLR Releases its Pro-Latino Voter Guide NCLR has released its new NCLR Voter Guide to assist Latino voters in the upcoming 2006 election. The NCLR Voter Guide provides an overview of some of the key issues facing the Latino community in areas such as access to health care, civic engagement, education, criminal justice, economic opportunities, immigration, and jobs and the workforce. The guide also outlines what policy positions a candidate or incumbent would need to have to be considered "pro-Hispanic." "We are a strongly nonpartisan, bipartisan institution which realizes that enacting legislation to improve the lives of this nation's 41 million Latinos cannot be done without the help and support of members of Congress from both sides of the aisle," continued Murguía.

source: PRLDEF PRLDEF Continues Fight For Day Laborers With recent victories in New York and New Jersey and new cases in three other municipalities, PRLDEF has become the premier Latino organization fighting for the rights of day laborers throughout the Northeast. A recent federal court decision stopped Farmingville from unfairly evicting day laborers from their homes and in Freehold PRLDEF stopped the city from closing down an important muster zone. PRLDEF is continuing to fight for the rights of day laborers in Westchester County, Long Island and New Jersey. In Mamaroneck, city officials recently voted to temporarily close a popular day laborer muster zone. PRLDEF was joined by the Hispanic Resource Center of Larchmont, Mamaroneck and MALDEF to urge the city council to quickly resolve the issue. Soon after the city closed the zone, workers moved to a park a few blocks away. Though city officials recognized the rights of the workers to stand on the sidewalk, there are us
