Annual Program 2007: Peace with Justice Center invites you to participate in an exciting gathering of Peace Activists with one of the Humane Immigrant Rights leader, Angelica Salas. She was 29 years old when she became the executive director of CHIRLA—Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles. The Mexican-born community leader began her immigrant rights work as a volunteer for CHIRLA in 1995, when the organization consisted of only seven paid staff members. Almost eleven years later, CHIRLA has grown to become one of the leading community organizations in Los Angeles serving immigrants from all over the world. The staff of 30 runs over a dozen programs to help educate immigrants about their rights, offer legal aid referrals, train immigrant youth to become leaders, assist in employee/employer wage disputes, as well as do advocacy at the local, state and federal level. Angela has a success story to share.
