9/9 – Leafleting Against SB1070 at Debate Featuring SB1070 Author Michael Hethmon
On September 9, Michael Hethmon, one of the people who drafted Arizona’s racist, anti-immigrant law SB1070, will be speaking at a debate at University of St. Thomas’s downtown Minneapolis campus starting at 5:00 pm. Join us to hand out flyers to the people there about our BAM! campaign to stop SB1070 and all anti-immigrant laws, from Arizona to Minnesota. We’ll mainly be flyering as people leave at the end of the event. Look for us! Event at the Schulze Grand Atrium at UST School of Law, 1000 Lasalle Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55403.

9/15 – 6:30 pm – Immigrant Rights Picketing at Governor Candidates Debate
Don’t let the gubernatorial candidates ignore immigrants rights! Let them know we want legalization for all and an end to deportations that separate families. Demand to know where the candidates stand on immigrants rights issues in Minnesota — the SB1070 copycat bill (HF3830), drivers licenses for all, and collaboration between ICE and local police. Join MIRAc and others to have a visible immigrant rights presence at the governor’s candidates debate between Dayton (DFL), Emmer (GOP) and Horner (I). The debate is at Pantages Theater (710 Hennepin Ave., downtown Mpls) on Wednesday, Sept. 15. Meet outside by 6:30 p.m. for picketing.
