Mi Familia Vota announces that veteran Latino advocate Hector Sanchez Barba will join the organization as Executive Director and CEO. Sanchez has been recruited by MFV to lead the organization in advance of the 2020 census and presidential election, joining the organization from the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA) where he served as Executive Director.
Mi Familia Vota stands in solidarity with DACA recipients and condemns the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the policy. His administration has chosen to embrace a knee-jerk policy based on a xenophobic, politically-calculated rationale to kick out these young people.
DACA faces its greatest challenge at the Supreme Court on November 12. Mi Familia Vota, in partnership with organizations across the state, is co-leading a slate of actions to defend DACA as part of the California mobilization efforts of the national #HomeIsHere campaign.
