The Senate immigration bill, which includes a path to citizenship for our nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants, passed through the Senate Judiciary Committee this week and is on its way to the Senate floor for a debate and vote. Couple that with a recent survey that found over 80% of North Carolinians support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants currently living in the U.S. and we’re on our way.
Now is the time to demand that North Carolina Senators Richard Burr and Kay Hagan stand on the right side of history and publicly support the Senate’s immigration reform bill.
We are happy to share that we are part of North Carolina State Employees Combined Campaign 2013. Please consider give us a donation our 2013 SECC code is 33649.
The principal aim of the State Employees Combined Campaign is to strengthen and sustain North Carolina communities and their citizens. The campaign assures state employees and retirees continuous opportunity to support charitable organizations that are accountable, fiscally sound, and committed to improving the quality of life in our state, nation and the world.

I am writing in response to your article by Angelina Jolie published on May 15th. The actress had a double mastectomy to reduce her risk of developing cancer. The media quickly praised the Jolie-Pitt family: Angelina for her courage and her husband for the unconditional support for his adored wife. As a health promoter in the Latino community, I was disheartened. During the past two years, I have given out information about the importance of breast awareness and mammograms. I have done everything possible to connect each woman I reach with existing services. The problem is that Angelina, a public figure with lots of money, has all of the resources needed to access the best technology, even genetic research. It is great that science is moving forward but we must move forward with the means to ensure that these advances in science are accessible to all in our communities, without regard to borders, sex, race or economic status. Otherwise, we are creating an unjust world, with health as a privilege only for some members in our communities. If we are going to move forward, we need to do so side by side, creating conditions of equity for every human being.
El Pueblo's promotores juveniles (youth peer educators) held another successful workshop on May 7th geared towards promoting healthy decisions and empowered communication about sex among Latin@ teens in Wake County.

The next event called "Talk to Me: A Family Night Workshop" will focus on effective communication among parents and youth. The workshop will be held on June 19th in Raleigh (exact location to be determined). The registration form is accessible by clicking here
