Here in Charlotte, the Latin American Coalition hosted a We Are NC solidarity vigil to stand with immigrants and against hate and discrimination. The event was led by passionate pro-immigrant remarks from Pastor Danny Busquette of Latin Harvest Time Church, Charlotte City Councilman John Autry, and members of our youth group United 4 The Dream.
