A Report-back from Resistance to Arizona’s SB 1070:
a panel discussion with five Houston activists
who joined organizers in Arizona this summer to combat SB1070 and other anti-immigration laws
Last April, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed SB1070, a law that increases racial profiling, tears immigrant families apart, and forces many to live in desperate conditions.  Since the passing of this high-profile law, many legislators here in Texas have vowed to adopt almost identical measures. 
The Houston activists will hold a panel discussion on what they encountered as the extraordinary,
coordinated resistance coming from those most affected by this legislation. 
Come and be part of the dialogue
and hear about how what is happening to Arizona’s immigrant communities has implications for Texas,
and the struggle against attacks on immigrants throughout the US.
