Latin American Coalition

Group

The Latin American Coalition is a Charlotte-based activist organization belonging to three radical liberal political networks including Blueprint NC. The Latin American Coalition is also affiliated with the extremist organization La Raza (The Race). Cecilia Munoz, the former chief lobbyist for La Raza, had to be given an ethics waiver in order to co-chair the White House task force that will facilitate President Obama’s November 2014 memo to grant amnesty to roughly 5 million illegal aliens.

Blueprint NC is the political group that gained infamy with its strategy memo that directed their members to “eviscerate, mitigate, litigate, cogitate and agitate” the state’s leadership in 2013.
