June is Immigrant Heritage Month, a time to come together to celebrate our heritage and our diverse communities.  The annual event is dedicated to those who have contributed to our communities, economy, and fabric of America. 

Immigrants are parents, neighbors, and friends. They are nurses and doctors and do some of the toughest jobs such as caring for our children, the sick and the elderly, and securing and cleaning our offices and airports.    Immigrants strengthen our economy by creating millions of jobs every year, running almost a fifth of the small businesses across America, and developing cutting-edge technology. 

In recognition of Immigrant Heritage Month, SEIU is kicking things off by celebrating SEIU Local 105 Vice President of Property Services, Patricia Robles. As a leader and an advocate in the Fight for $15, Justice For Janitors campaign, and immigration reform, Patricia continues to fight to make sure working people and immigrants get treated with dignity and respect and that their right to stick together in a union is protected.  In her daughter’s words: 

My mom has achieved many things, from becoming a citizen to being part of the SEIU team that won a path to $15 minimum wage.  Being a mom is a hard job, and to raise three kids in a different country is even harder.
