June 19, 2014

In Washington State, Casa Latina made history in becoming the first worker center to join the executive board of the state AFL-CIO body. Cariño Barragan Talancon, a Casa Latina staff member, was appointed to the Washington State Labor Council (WSLC) Executive Board as the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement representative. In May, she was sworn in and attended her first meeting. Casa Latina is a worker center and Seattle-based nonprofit that works to educate, assist and empower Latino and immigrant workers. The WSLC affiliated Casa Latina in 2009 and have worked closely in partnership for several years. Earlier this year, Casa Latina also joined forces with the Martin Luther King County Labor Council in Seattle.
