Tell the Senate to Confirm Tom Perez

Perez_photo2The country needs a labor secretary and we think Tom Perez is the best man for the job. That’s why today we’re calling on senators to stop the unwarranted attacks and filibuster threats against the president’s nominee. We’re joining our Affiliate, Casa de Maryland, and the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda (NHLA) in a march and a press conference today to make sure we’re heard loud and clear.

Tomorrow, the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions is scheduled to vote on Perez’ nomination and we need your help in making sure those senators know we support him.

There are several steps you can take to do this and NHLA has made it easy with two resource pages full of actions you can take both online and offline 

To get you started, we’ve included a few tweets and facebook updates you can use.

#TomPerez is a champion of equality, fairness & civil rights. He needs our help. Urge your senators to #ConfirmTom.

We need the Senate to #ConfirmTom to help protect the rights of #Latino workers. Tweet your Senators. #ConfirmTom

1 out of 15 members in Obama’s cabinet could be Latino. Help confirm Tom Perez as the new U.S. Secretary of Labor by calling, emailing and tweeting your Senators today! Take action at!
