El Colectivo NC strongly rejects anti-immigrant and xenophobic bills that have been introduced (most of them had already been vetoed) in the General Assembly, as well as similar bills that will be introduced in the following weeks. The HB10/SB 50, HB40, HB63, HB64 and SB49 bills not only harm local families but our community as a whole. These bills are based on racism, hate, xenophobia, and misinformation and only put immigrants, minorities, and LGBTQ youth at risk.
Petates are a symbol of resilience and strength. They have been used by people who have faced many challenges and continue to be used by people who are struggling to survive. The petate is a reminder that even in the most difficult times, there is always hope.
