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.

In a unique effort, our staff in New England supported public service announcements on Spanish radio stations urging Major League Baseball to move the 2011 All Star Game from Phoenix.
