I am saddened and frustrated by the things that are happening in Arizona right now like our economic meltdown and the passage of bigoted laws that harm the community and the state. And on top of that, major cities are “boycotting” Arizona. I can’t say this enough, the woman who signed SB1070 into law was never elected by the citizens of Arizona. We overwhelming elected Janet Napolitano and she would never have signed that bill.
Arizona is not a state of racist bigots although at times those people have the loudest voices.
If you are tired of that voice speaking for us then come be heard and seen at SOS Congress in Central Phoenix at the Heard Museum on Sunday, June 27 at 8 a.m.
From their website:
Over 500 Arizonans from diverse cultures and belief systems will stand united, shoulder to shoulder and spell out SOS CONGRESS while we are photographed from 12 stories above. This photograph will be going to the national media, along with a series of portraits, also shot that morning, each with three Arizonans standing side by side.
Regardless of our differences this is something we can all relate to as Arizonans. This is a bill that negatively impacts all of us in a multitude of ways. The Federal Government needs to stand up and take control of this issue, which not only affects us here in Arizona, but the rest of the country as well.
