The last eight days have galvanized the immigrant rights movement, and there are hundreds of rallies planned all over the country tomorrow. Advocates, attorneys, and lawmakers are asking that supporters of immigrant rights and immigration reform get out tomorrow to demand action at the federal level and denounce Arizona’s recent SB 1070. The resounding call is statement of solidarity with the immigrant community there: “We are all Arizona.” Todos somos Arizona.
On Facebook, tomorrow’s also been coined “Do I Look Illegal? Day.” From Kernersville, North Carolina, to Walla Walla, Washington, there’s a march happening near you. Reform Immigration 4 America’s wemarchforamerica.org has become the central place for posting and finding local rallies.
The Arizona boycott is also picking up steam. Yesterday, organizers launched Arizona-Boycott.org with a list and accompanying contact information of Arizona-based companies to stay away from. Researchers are also compiling a list of local businesses to support.
