In the Queen City, our Latinx community has deep roots in immigrant justice. In January 2020, the Carolina Migrant Network (CMN) was co-founded by Stefania Arteaga, a longtime activist that calls Charlotte home since immigrating from El Salvador, and immigration attorney Becca O’Neill. CMN is the first of its kind in the Carolinas, working to provide pro bono services to fight deportations and family separations happening in our community.
Hispanic Heritage Month kicks off on Sept. 15 and we are excited to spend the month honoring the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latin Americans!
