housing, access to education, language and job discrimination, workplace
justice issues, freedom of movement and treatment of day laborers,
criminalization of Latinos, unlawful police practices,and all forms of bias
that adversely affect Latinos. Recent landmark successes include Lozano
v. Hazleton stopping a Pennsylvania town from enforcing local
immigration ordinance redistricting access to employment and housing; Aquilar
v. U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcementobtaining
national injunctive reforms and $1 million in damages for Latinos targeted in
pre-dawn ICE home raids; Favors v. Cuomo, securing a fair
decennial Congressional redistricting plan in NY that reflects growing Latino
population increases; and Doe v. Mamaroneck enjoining
discriminatory police enforcement against Latino day laborers in Westchester
