Labor Council for Latin American Advancement

Labor Council for Latin American Advancement is an organization founded in 1972 to build political empowerment of the Latino population. It is affiliated with the AFL-CIO and the Change to Win federation.[1]

Communist influence

In the early 1970s, Communist Party USA aligned union members began to find their voice through new coalitions such as the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists , the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement , and the National Coordinating Committee for Trade Unionists for Action and Democracy. TUAD leaders — Fred Gaboury, Rayfield Mooty, Debbie Albano and Adelaide Bean, along with Labor Today editors Jim Williams and Scott Marshall, helped bring these coalitions together. These labor coalitions, like Coalition of Labor Union Women, reflected rising communist influence in the labor movement.[2]
