"We are a nation of immigrants. We recognize the continuing contributions of immigrants to our communities’ economic and cultural well-being."
FCLCA's Policy Statement on Human Rights
We support state actions and legislation to protect the rights of immigrants and to promote racial justice.
In 2022, we are supporting, among other bills:
- SB 17 to create an Office of Racial Equity – FCLCA voiced support for this bill and for $40 million to create the Office of Racial Equity in Assembly and Senate Budget hearings.
- Expanding full-scope Medi-Cal to all income-eligible adults regardless of immigration status.
- AB 2847 to set up a pilot wage replacement program for undocumented workers who are not covered by state unemployment insurance.
