25 years ago, the anti-immigrant ballot measure Prop 187 passed in the state of California due to the fear-mongering of racists, frightened of a growing community.

With it sparked a movement that fired up generations of disenfranchised immigrants, emboldening us to fight an unjust system and make our voices heard.

We banded together and mobilized by the millions. With students organizing massive walkouts and unions organizing hundreds of thousands of Latino and Asian workers, union leaders of today were born in the crucible of the fight. Prop 187 united us like never before, bringing a wave of progress that rolled across the state, crushing the system that would deny us justice and equality.

Join us in honoring the movement that turned the tide and crushed the racist narrative. Show this regressive administration that we still stand united against hate. We will not hide in fear, but we will celebrate how far we’ve come from California’s regressive past.

En 1994, el gobernador de California, Pete Wilson, aprobó una iniciativa electoral racista conocida como la Proposición 187, para expulsar a los indocumentados de las escuelas y hospitales, y convertir a cada trabajador estatal en agente migratorio.

Las comunidades de inmigrantes no se escondieron con miedo. Nos movilizamos en los millones y empoderamos a las comunidades más marginadas para revocar la iniciativa racista.

Únase a nosotros para conmemorar nuestra histórica lucha contra la Proposición 187 y el impacto que tuvo en nuestro movimiento laboral.
