From Selma to Phoenix; from Civil Rights to Human Rights; and the rights of Mother Earth!
On Friday, April 23rd, Governor Jan Brewer signed SB 1070- the most extreme anti-immigrant legislation of our generation into effect in the state of Arizona. Arizona's immigrant community is organizing and preparing to mount the political, legal, and economic pressure needed to restore constitutional protections to the state. They need the nation's help to change the federal policy that allowed for the formation of SB 1070. On May 29th, PUENTE Movement and NDLON are calling on people of conscience across the country to converge on Arizona. Together we will march to stop the hate and demand that Obama issue an executive order nullifying SB 1070 and all local police and federal immigration enforcement collaboration programs. Please donate to support these crucial efforts. We are hoping to raise $15,000 to cover the costs of the largest mobilization for justice that Phoenix has ever seen.
1. We demand that President Obama issue an executive order to re-assert federal control of Immigration Enforcement.
2. We demand an end to all local police and federal immigration enforcement programs. An end to 287g “secure communities”!
3. No More Sheriff Joe Arpaios!
