Our brothers and sisters in Arizona have called for supporters to join their protests on May 29th and hold solidarity events across the country. Join Oregon's immigrant, faith, labor, and community organizations in saying NO to racial profiling, NO to 287g, and NO human being is illegal!

Arizona's SB1070 affects everyone. It legalizes racial profiling and furthers the disturbing trend of putting the blame for this economic crisis on the wrong people. Several states are already considering similar legislation. In Oregon, we are facing gradual steps in this direction, with the increasing collaboration between local police and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Read more about these local developments from the Safe Communities Project.
