Center on Latino and Latina Rights and Equality
The Center on Latino and Latina Rights and Equality (CLORE) focuses on issues impacting the Latino community in the United States, with the goal of developing progressive strategies for legal reform.
CLORE in Action
The Center has been following closely the developments surrounding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — commonly known as DACA or deferred action — the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) policy that, as of August 15, 2012, has allowed certain undocumented students to apply for a work permit.
This site seeks to provide numerous sources for readers to have easily accessible information regarding the "Latino Vote" and how it impacted the 2012 presidential election.
