Stand with immigrant families

Reform Immigration FOR America
A week of action to stand with immigrant families

You and I have witnessed the fallout from the current patchwork of state immigration laws: while we win victories in California and Illinois, we face devastating moral and humanitarian crises in Alabama and Arizona. A stance must be taken at the federal level to ensure that we can move forward to reform our immigration system as an entire nation.

Next month, the US Supreme Court will take on Arizona's extreme anti-immigrant law, SB 1070.

The impact of the Supreme Court's decision on SB 1070 can't be overstated. For all those who have fought back against this racist law for nearly two years, this could be the moment our government declares once and for all that state-sponsored hate and racial profiling will be not be tolerated.

While the justices debate, we will be in the streets and online across the country, calling for justice and equality under the law for all immigrant families. We are planning for a week of action with national and grassroots partners, to make sure the court knows that the entire country will be following their decision.

I'll be writing more soon about all the ways you can get involved. If you or your community is planning events around the Supreme Court case, reply to this email and let us know.

Simply put, Arizona's SB 1070 is un-American – and we will unite to act for justice for all. Stay tuned for more details.

With hope,

PS: As part of the week of action, national allies will be launching an exciting project to encourage thousands of eligible individuals to start the process for naturalization. If you want to learn more about this project, please sign up for more information.
