Short and Strong

Short and Strong

Cortos Y Fuertes is a contest sponsored by the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor and UNITE HERE, the union of hotel and food service workers. The mission is to encourage young people across the country to share stories of immigrants in their lives. America was built on the hard work and ambition of immigrants, and Cortos Y Fuertes wants you to capture that ambition on video by telling your story.

Participants are tasked with creating videos that tell the story of your family, dreams and pride using handheld video cameras, smart phones, and whatever other equipment and software you own or have permission to use. We encourage you to investigate issues in your communities, within the boundaries of the law.

As our country is poised on the brink of moving forward on a path to citizenship for America’s eleven million undocumented immigrants, The CORTOS Y FUERTES / SHORT & STRONG student film competition will add the voices of young people, at their creative best, to this national dialogue.

These short student films will tell the stories of immigrants.

Stories of family, pride, hard work and dreams.

We welcome your voice, your film. CORTOS Y FUERTES / SHORT & STRONG is sponsored by labor unions — the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO and UNITE HERE – in collaboration with distinguished social justice activists and luminaries in the entertainment industry.

Submissions are due by September 20, 2013! More info here:

Our coalition of labor, community organizations, and faith leaders has joined forces in supporting three main principles:

3) Defending workplace rights and improving standards for all workers. 

Nevadans support immigration reform, and the Time is NOW for congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Join us!

Meet Michelle, cocktail server at the Cosmopolitan

My babies are the main reason that I am involved with the union. When I came to the Cosmo two years ago I was given hope that with our union recognition would come a timely contract and the Culinary union health insurance… the best health insurance. My oldest son was born prematurely and with a blood disorder and my newest addition was born with a congenital defect. 

We are all here for the same basic reasons and we are all making similar personal and economic sacrifices for this contract. 

I will sacrifice anything today to provide for my family tomorrow.
