This Thursday, July 29, Arizona's racist, anti-immigrant law, SB 1070, goes into effect. SB 1070 enshrines racial profiling and immigrant bashing into law. A wave of protest has greeted SB 1070 since it was passed in April. Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets in Arizona and across the country. In July, a major demonstration organized by the ANSWER Coalition greeted Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer at a national governors' conference (see photo to the right).  

Protests this week are happening in Arizona and around the country. On July 28, the night before SB 1070 takes effect, ANSWER and other community organizations will gather at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix for a march and rally. People are coming from Phoenix, Tucson and Flagstaff in Arizona, as well as Nevada, New Mexico and California to make their voices heard. This is the only major protest in Arizona before SB 1070 becomes law. Click here to endorse the July 28th protest. To contact ANSWER in Phoenix, call 480-414-6553 or email [email protected].

ANSWER organizers in Phoenix are also mobilizing for the July 29 actions organized by Alto Arizona and others. People are traveling from across the country to participate in the National Day of Noncompliance. Together, we are working to build a united movement to stop racism and for full rights and equality. An injury to one is an injury to all!

Join us to demand:

  • Repeal Arizona’s SB 1070 and HB 2281!
  • No to all anti-immigrant legislation!
  • No human being is illegal—Full rights for all!
  • Stop Joe Arpaio! End all racial profiling and police brutality!
  • Stop the raids and deportations now!
  • Stop the budget cuts! Jobs, healthcare, education and housing—not war!
