El Comité de Servicio de los Amigos Americanos (AFSC), organización cuákera de paz y justicia, está muy preocupada por el fallo de la Suprema Corte de Justicia de Estados Unidos sobre la ley anti-inmigrante SB 1070 de Arizona, si bien aquélla invalida permanentemente otras partes de la ley.
The American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker peace and social justice organization, is very troubled by the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, although it permanently enjoins portions of Arizona’s anti-immigrant law SB 1070.
Since the passage of Arizona's, the anti-immigration law, AFSC has organized events across the country in response.
As the law went into effect last week, we organized 11 events in seven locations from Massachusetts to Oregon. We have over two dozen media hits, including NPR, Univision’s national coverage, local tv and cable news stations in San Diego, Boston and Providence and talk radio in Philadelphia and New York.
Press conference AFSC organized with our partners to protest the Arizona bill and law enforcement action.
Today, U.S. Judge Susan Bolton temporarily blocked the most dangerous components of SB 1070, Arizona’s racial profiling law. The American Friends Service Committee continues to believe that SB 1070 is immoral and unconstitutional. Judge Bolton’s injunction on SB 1070 is a clear indication that the infamous law is misguided.
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
