    Eliseo Medina

    2019 Honoree

    Eliseo Vasquez Medina (born January 24, 1946) is a Mexican American labor union activist and leader, and advocate for immigration reform in the United States. From 1973 to 1978, he was a board member of the United Farm Workers. He was also secretary-treasurer of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) until his resignation in 2013.

     

    Medina retired from SEIU in 2013 to concentrate more of his time on winning passage of immigration reform. In November and December 2013, Medina undertook a 22-day hunger strike, at the age of 67, to draw attention to the need for action on immigration reform. During his fast, Medina was visited by President Obama in a tent near the Capitol in Washington, DC.
