NALAAC and Centro Presente Tell NPR Affiliate, WBUR, No Human Being Is Illegal!
Centro Presente through the National Association of Latin American and Caribbean Communities (NALACC) Somos/We Are Initiative is asking Boston's local NPR Affiliate, WBUR to Drop The I-Word. Here's an email I just received:
Send an email to Dave Shaw WBUR News Editor
or call the newsroom: (617) 353-0770
Dear Mr. Shaw,
My name is __________ I listen to WBUR radio and I support the SOMOS/WE ARE initiative promoted by NALACC and recognize that immigrants of today represent an invaluable asset for the wellbeing and progress of the United States of America.
PLEASE desist in the use of the word "illegal" in your reporting to describe undocumented immigrants, because only things and actions are illegal. Human beings are not. Thank you so much for your attention!
