The AFSC's NC Immigrant Rights Program has been involved in an effort to monitor immigrant-related bills at the state legislature, promote pro-immigrant bills and fight anti-immigrant initiatives, including the NC House Select Committee on the State's Role in Immigration Policy. Together with our allies, we are releasing the following petition to make it clear to our representatives that we oppose any efforts to alienate and harm our immigrant brothers and sisters, especially an Arizona/ Alabama type regressive immigration law.
