On May 24, 2016, the Human Rights Alliance for Child Refugees & Families protested Hillary Clinton's visit to Los Angeles and called on the community to take to the streets to remind her that she is NOT welcomed in LA! She is a war criminal who has openly called for the deportation of unaccompanied refugee children back to Central America. She was responsible for the coup of President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras and the killing of thousands in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Palestine. The Human Rights Alliance focuses on the root causes of forced migration and ultimately sees all these issues connected. Also, this event is being organized by various community based organizations and NOT by the Bernie Sanders campaign. Although some of the people in attendance will undoubtedly be Bernie Sanders supporters, the majority of the organizers are non-partisan.
Endorsing organizations included: Unión del Barrio, Familia: Transqueer Liberation Movement, Immigrant Youth Coalition, CISPES LA, Homies Unidos and Central American Youth Council.
