Lechuga—Let Us

Let us practice progressive politics and reject paternalistic gestures.

Let us demand safe, healthy, affordable, housing and stop corrupt institutions from presenting gentrification as the only solution.

Let us stop job exploitation and acknowledge the contributions of underpaid workers.

Let us draw a clear line to protect ourselves from the invasion forces made up of people who look like us, sent by those who look nothing like us.

Let us overcome the human inclination to ignore the obvious.

Let us acknowledge that we are all immigrants.

Let us take swift action to resolve the destructive contradictions that are meant to divide and conquer our collective will.

Nancy L. Green
