In solidarity with a National Day of action on October 26th, Local 100 participated in an action to spread awareness of TPS, temporary Protected Status, and the inhumane effects that winding down the program would have on 800,000 American Residents. Local 100 joined with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs to hand out over 1,000 informational leaflets in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole. Local 100 member Hugo, who joined the group to leaflet, is a father of two who came to this country from Ecuador fleeing violence and fearing for his life. Hugo joined the action in order to increase awareness about the TPS program and what dismantling it would mean for his and his families futures.
