Call Congress

Join The Boycott

The SB1070 bill opens the doors to racial profiling.  It requires police officers, if they form a 'reasonable suspicion' that someone is an illegal immigrant, to determine the person's immigration status.

With your help, we can make sure this doesn't go any further and remind President Obama, Congressional leaders and the people of Arizona that this is not the way it is done in America.  We need your help to stop this unconstitutional law!

We ask organizations, civic, religious, labor and individuals to refrain from using Arizona as a convention site and vowing not to spend your vacation dollars in that state until SB1070 law is overturned or ruled unconstitutional.
