The New York City Campaign Finance Board (CFB) administers one of the strongest, most effective campaign finance systems in the country. NYC’s matching funds program amplifies the voice of average New Yorkers in city elections by matching their small contributions with public funds. By increasing the value of small-dollar contributions, the program reduces the possibility and perception of corruption from large contributions and unlimited campaign spending, and encourages citizens from all walks of life to run for office. Through its rigorous oversight and enforcement efforts, the CFB holds candidates accountable for using public funds responsibly.
The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda (NHLA) was established in 1991 as a nonpartisan association of major Hispanic national organizations and distinguished Hispanic leaders from all over the nation.
NHLA’s mission calls for unity among Latinos around the country to provide the Hispanic community with greater visibility and a clearer, stronger influence in our country’s affairs. NHLA brings together Hispanic leaders to establish policy priorities that address, and raise public awareness of, the major issues affecting the Latino community and the nation as a whole.
Since its inception in 1972, LCLAA has remained a grassroots organization driven and directed by Latino labor leaders who understand the importance of unionization in helping workers secure rights and protections on the job, empowering them to become voices for justice and change in their communities. We are committed to the growth and progress of the labor movement and the Latino community. This commitment combined with the relentless work ethic of our chapters and leaders has helped LCLAA play a major role in the historic elections of Latinos at all levels of government. LCLAA has made it its mission to transmit the assets of the Latino community to the labor movement, the government and beyond. As a result, from local city mayors to Federal Congressional positions, Latinos are now better represented in the political life of this country.

Veterans of the U.S. Army’s 65th Infantry Regiment, the unit of Puerto Rican soldiers that served in World War I, World War II and Korean War were honored with the Congressional Gold Medal in a ceremony at Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol. These soldiers, known as the “Borinqueneers,” answered the nation’s call to serve at a time when the military was still segregated. They were the largest, longest standing and only active duty segregated Latino military unit in U.S. history.
Puerto Rico faces a landfill crisis. Instead of safe, law-abiding municipal landfills, we have mountains of toxic trash that is threatening our communities in every part of our country. For this reason, we have launched PUERTO RICO LIMPIO to expose the truth about the landfills in our communities, to denounce the violations we citizens know about, to educate the public about the threat that non-compliant landfills post to our health and safety, and to demand action.
We are a multi-sectoral group of citizens, from different municipalities and regions of Puerto Rico, who have started PUERTO RICO LIMPIO on the internet to call on citizens from every community to act as whistle blowers about toxic, dangerous landfills in your community.
Share with us your denunciations, your concerns, and add your voice to our demand for action. You can find useful information here about what to look for, how it is dangerous, how it breaks the local and federal rules, and what we can do together to fight for a cleaner and safer Puerto Rico.
