Natalia Alonso to speak at our February 20th meeting

Natalia Alonso
We are pleased to welcome Natalia Alonso, founder of Los Niños de Corsos, as guest speaker at our next meeting of People for Peace & Justice on Wednesday, February 20, 6:30 pm, at First UCC, 1500 Tiffin Rd., Fremont.  We’ll begin with a potluck dinner.  We invite you to join us!
Natalia, a student at Ross High School in Fremont, organized a large scale grassroots campaign, called Los Niños de Corsos, to help the families who were affected by the ICE raid at Corsos in Sandusky in June. R She spoke at the June rally we cosponsored in Norwalk in support of justice for the Corsos workers and their families. The News-Messenger’s latest article about Natalia tells about her invitation to speak at the Women’s March in Cleveland last month, one of many speaking invitations she has accepted.  We are so delighted that she has agreed to be our guest at our Feb. 20 meeting!
