NALEO and NALEO Educational Fund stand in solidarity with the Black community.

“In the spirit of justice, accountability, and equal protection under the law, it is imperative that as a diverse and multifaceted community, Latinos stand alongside our brothers and sisters in the Black community as our nation faces an overdue moment of self-reflection and opportunity to create meaningful change that promotes equity and upholds the dignity of Black life.”

In the tradition of promoting a civically engaged population opposed to systemic racism and injustice, we call on Latinos throughout the country to use the power of our voices to make it unequivocally clear that Black lives matter.”
