Corner of NE Holladay & 13th Ave

LET’S TAKE ACTION TOGETHER!  On July 29th lets join together in a national day of action against Arizona Law SB1070!  Many states are considering legislation similar to Arizona's SB 1070. The law, which says that police officers must detain anyone who may appear to be illegal, is scheduled to go into effect on Wed, July 28th. With many other states considering similar laws, it's crucial that we stand in solidarity with the people of Arizona and with all immigrants everywhere!  Police and ICE (Immigration and Custom Enforcement) Collaboration Must Stop Now!

On July 29th we will gather at 5pm for materials, signs, and activist orientation.  Together we will spread the word and get others to send the message to Arizona that No One Is Illegal! Let's send our message to the governor’s office.
