Congresswoman Ilhan Omar secured funds for COPAL, for the development of the Primero de Mayo Workers Center

On March 14, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar hosted a press conference with leaders from several community organizations that will receive funds she secured for Minnesota’s 5th district.

COPAL and its partner ACER (African Career, Education, & Resource) will receive funds from the federal government, thanks to the advocacy of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Senator Amy Klobuchar. COPAL focuses its work on the Latino community and ACER on the African community.

We are grateful to Senator Amy Klobuchar and Representative Ilhan Omar, who through their leadership were able to secure funding for the state of Minnesota.

COPAL will invest the funds in the work of our Primero de Mayo Workers Center, which seeks to strengthen and accompany our families in their search for a better standard of living.
