Wed Feb 18 2009 Teach-ins, Conference and Peaceful Dignity Walk and Demonstration in Phoenix, AZ
National Protest in Phoenix on Feb 28 Against Sheriff Joe Arpaio Phoenix, AZ - Organizations from around the country are calling for an end to the immigration raids of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and specifically to revoke his controversial contract with the Department of Homeland Security.

A national organizing conference will be held in Phoenix, Arizona on February 27th, as well as a Peaceful Dignity Walk and Demonstration on February 28th. Demonstrators will carry a simple message: Stop the raids and revoke all 287(g) agreements that allow local law enforcement departments to arrest people suspected of being in the country without proper documentation.

On February 4th, Arpaio forced undocumented immigrant inmates to march to a segregated area in his notorious "Tent City." Organizations universally condemned the action and pledged to assist the people of Maricopa County to overcome Sheriff Arpaio's reign of terror. Read more
