Salem, Ore.-- This Saturday, CAUSA, several other organizations and immigrant rights advocates will hold a rally and march at the Oregon State Capitol in solidarity with the National Day of Action against S.B. 1070--Arizona's New Racial Profiling Law. They will send a message to members of the State Legislature that racist laws like S.B. 1070 are not welcome in Oregon.
Join immigrant rights supporters at both events and say "NO" to racist laws in Oregon and Arizona and "YES" to Immigration Reform!

Portland March and Vigil
SW 3rd and Madison, 5pm
Coordinated by the Portland Immigrants Rights Coalition and Portland May Day Coalition
Signed into law last month by Governor Jan Brewer, Arizona's Senate Bill 1070 provides sweeping and unprecedented immigration enforcement powers to local law enforcement-- legalizing racial profiling and opening the door to civil rights violations.
On May 29th, marches, rallies and other actions in solidarity with Immigrant and Latino Families in Arizona are expected in cities from coast to coast. In Oregon, event organizers are expecting thousands of people from around the state to gather at both the State Capitol and in Downtown Portland.
