America Ferrera (AmericaFerrera), EvaLongoria reassure Latinx community in open letter: 'You are not alone'

United States News, United States Headlines

America Ferrera, Eva Longoria, Mónica Ramírez, Wilder Valderrama and over 150 Latinx leaders in entertainment, business and activism sent a message of solidarity to their community on Friday following ICE raids, the El Paso shooting and reports of poor migrant detention conditions.

"The indignities and cruelty we have endured will never change the truth that the contributions we make to this country are invaluable," the letter continues. "Our humanity must be respected. And, we won’t stop organizing for ourselves, our children, and for the soul of this nation." To "allies," the letter asks that they hold leaders accountable, support community organizations and do their part to speak up and act against "hate.

Mónica Ramírez, the founder of Justice for Migrant Women and Esperanza: The Immigrant Women’s Legal Initiative of the Southern Poverty Law Center, got the idea for the letter in the aftermath of the Mississippi ICE raids on Aug. 7. That day and the day following, she reached out to Latinx leaders in entertainment and other fields to pull a message together.
