At Latina/o Advocacy Day 2014, COLOR organizer Amber Garcia testified in opposition of a bill to repeal CADA - that was passed only last year to protect individuals impacted by workplace discrimination:
Historically communities of color, particularly women of color, and LGBT community members have been faced with barriers like discrimination in the work place. We know that discrimination in the workplace leads to lost work, wage gaps and overall greater economic insecurity for families... [and] can be compounded for LGBT parents who live at the intersection of other marginalized identities. If reproductive justice includes the right to parent our children free from discrimination, we must consider how job insecurity and instability cause reproductive injustice for LGBT people.
We are a sisterhood of Latinas dedicated to building a movement of Latinas, their families and allies through leadership development, organizing and advocacy to create opportunities and achieve reproductive justice.
We believe Reproductive Justice, or RJ, exists when all individuals have the power, access and resources to make healthy decisions about their bodies, sexuality, relationships and families for themselves and their community.
