Immigration activists across nation rally against Arizona's anti-immigrant law under Supreme Court's review

On April 25, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments for and against Arizona’s anti-immigrant law. Pro-immigrant groups across the nation call the measure a thinly veiled attempt to isolate immigrants and people of color and to deny them basic rights.

The Supreme Court will decide whether states have the right to promote racism, hatred, and police harassment toward immigrants and people of color through laws like Arizona's.

Immigration rights groups who are members of the Fair Immigration Reform Movement will hold ‘echo actions’ nationwide on why the Supreme Court must declare Arizona’s law unconstitutional.

A list of events that will occur nationwide is being compiled by Reform Immigration For America. It is reprinted here for your convenience.
