Latinos Protest Discrimination New York City 2003

Latinos protested discrimination in New York City’s bureaucracy on July 23, 2003. The demonstrators marched to support Intro 38, the Equal Access to Health and Human Services Act, which would provide language access to city services for people with limited English proficiency.  The proposal was signed into law by New York City Mayor Bloomberg in December of that year, with a five-year phase-in for full compliance.  (Photo by Mario Tama/ Getty Images.)
