NC groups to respond to expected SCOTUS decision on Arizona SB1070

Posted By Ricky Leung On June 22, 2012 @ 3:29 pm In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

While the Obama administration has taken some steps in its stance on immigration issues [1], the U.S. Supreme Court continues to be somewhat sluggish in its decision regarding Arizona’s SB1070. [2]

In similar spirit as protestors in Arizona [2], local NC groups and individuals in an alliance called “We are NC” will be holding events throughout the state [3], including an event in downtown Raleigh at 7pm in a “Teach-in and Silent Vigil.”

More information on the Raleigh event can be found on their facebook event page [4].

And also check out this documentary short [5] following a local NC undocumented youth as part of a master’s thesis by UNC student Josh Davis. His full project, “the undocumentary,” here. [6]
