Commissioner Delma Rivera, had the honor and privilege to introduce Governor Tom Wolf during the press conference at the YMCA/ York Pa. We are extremely proud for all she does for the Latino community in York Pa. Go Delma!!!!
Hola buen dia, vivo en Erie! Trabajaba de interprete, aplique bajo PUA y mi ultima semana de empleo fue la 1ra semana de abril. He sometido pay stubs, cualquier otra documentacion que me pudiera ayudar y afortunadamente obtuve un credito parcial. Lamentablemente al sol de hoy no se me ha pagado. Estuve expuesta a un posible COVID de parte de una clienta que no divulgo sus sintomas hasta el ultimo momento. Estuve 14 dias en cuarentena medica. No he estado mentalmente estable; estoy bajo depresion y supervision de un siquiatra. Ahora no estoy 100% en condiciones de trabajar, por eso no he buscado otro trabajo, posiblemente interpretando desde casa por el susto que pase. Gracias y que tengan buen dia!
History of Gacla: Executive Director Ms. Luz B Colon and Dr Natalia Ortiz at the public hearing addressing the opioids crisis . #Gacla presente addressing the #Airbridge crisis between Puerto Rico and Philadelphia. That was the first time that I met the community leader Charito Morales who testified as well.
More of the #GalaArgentina. #Gaclapresente
I had the honor of representing #Gacla at the #GalaArgentina this past November 23,2019 at #CitylineHiltonhotel . Governor Wolf sent his regards through a proclamation that was presented to the audience of 400.
Here are some of the Latino's who ran this election. If you have any photos of anyone we may have missed, please feel free to inbox us and we will gladly post. Thank you!
On behalf of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs, we are proud to congratulate all of the extraordinary Latinos that ran in this years primary elections across the Commonwealth. Some races were neck in neck, and some were easily won, however, our fight isn't over as we continue a different phase, and a different approach to the legislative body. It gives us great pride as we see more Latinos in political leadership roles. Let's continue to move Pennsylvania forward for all Latinos of this great Keystone state. Our goal and mission for this Commission to support, and partner with all levels of Government for the greater good of the Latino Community in PA. To all Latinos that made history, had or did not have a victory, and gave it their all, Congratulations,and let's continue to work on this movement as Pennsylvania continues to serve the growing Latino community. #GACLAPRESENTE #GovernorTomWolf #sisepuede #latinosinpower
