Join me in solidarity
Earlier this month, we asked you to come to Arizona to stand witness in the face of the draconian immigration law set to go into effect on July 29th. More than 100 of you volunteered to make the journey to join me for the National Day of Non-Compliance.
This week, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton is hearing several lawsuits against Arizona’s proposed new law, brought by law enforcement officials and the Obama Administration. We are all watching to see if the law will still go into effect.
No matter how Judge Bolton rules, the broken system that precipitated the proposed law will still be in place. It is important that we keep the injustices of our immigration system at the forefront of our thoughts and actions. In response to this injustice, communities across the country are hosting prayers and actions in solidarity.
Can you plan or attend a vigil in your community in solidarity against injustice as a part of the July 29th-August 1st National Weekend of Prayer and Action for Immigrant Justice?
Next week, I will be alongside more than 100 volunteers joining clergy, lay leaders, and immigrants’ rights activists on the ground in Phoenix to stand with immigrants and Americans who fear that they will be targeted by police because of the color of their skin. By standing together, we can strongly demonstrate our commitment to a just society that respects the rights of all individuals.
Will you stand with me in your community, and add strength to our voice in solidarity against unjust racial profiling and a broken immigration system?
Plan a prayer vigil or similar action in your community and add it to the list here:
Whether your vigil has 3 people or 30 people, you will be joining a movement of communities across the country standing in solidarity with immigrants and fair-minded Arizonans who want better for their state.
As proceedings continue to develop on the ground, I will be providing updates to keep you informed. With the help of volunteers, we will be producing video and reporting on the increasingly tense situation.
I hope you will join your voice to mine in solidarity against racial profiling and an unjust immigration system.
Standing on the Side of Love
P.S. After you register we will send you everything you need to plan a successful event.
