Latino Unity Day 3On Cinco de Mayo, dozens of organizations and activists traveled to Springfield for Latino Unity Day to make sure lawmakers do what’s right for the Latino community.

Senate President John J. Cullerton and Senate Majority Caucus Whip Iris Y. Martinez joined members of the Illinois House at a morning rally in the Capitol. The elected officials speaking at the rally discussed issues that are important to the Latino community including restoring budget cuts and helping undocumented students get assistance for college.

After the rally, Latino Unity Day continued with a legislative luncheon, meetings with legislators and other activities.

“Today is about recognizing the important contributions Latinos make in our state every day,” said Senator Martinez.
