100 Women, 100 Miles, One Voice

September 17, 2015

One hundred immigrant women are walking 100 miles to welcome Pope Francis and remind the whole world of the importance of immigrant work, and working people in the labor movement will join them. On Saturday, Sept. 19, Neidi Dominguez, director of Worker Centers and assistant director for Community Change at the AFL-CIO, and María Elena Durazo, vice president of Immigration, Civil Rights and Diversity at UNITE HERE, will join these courageous women to speak out against immigrant families being separated as a result of the broken immigration system in the United States. The labor movement is proud to join the women in their fight against wage theft, gender discrimination and sexual harassment on the job. As we await the historic arrival of Pope Francis, we join activists from across the country to give him a warm welcome and uplift the voices of the immigrant women who help make this country better every day.
