Join Nearby SB 1070 Arizona Protests and Rallies

July 29th will go down in history. If not for its omen (the absurd passing of Arizona’s anti-minority, anti-equal rights, anti-common sense, SB 1070 law), then for its upheaval. Peaceful one at that. Thousands will gather all across the nation to oppose SB 1070 and everything it entails. The coined “breathing-while-brown law” is set to go into effect on this day, initiating what will become one of the most obscene examples of cultural regression this nation has witnessed. Although, thanks to U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, many of the most controversial aspects of SB 1070 (including the “not-so-random searches”) have been put on hold (word up, Susie!).

But people won’t remain silent to the fundamental flaws of the law. They’ll organize, they’ll yell, they’ll plea. They won’t riot (hopefully). This is, after all, the age of Aquarius.  But they’ll voice the frustration that thousands have been feeling.

There are anti-SB 1070 movements in every city where Latinos and compassionate people dwell. Check below for organized rallies and protests in your city (New York, LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, and Arizona). Join the cause and learn more about the SB 1070 bill in the process.
