Phoenix – A coalition of eight Phoenix organizations, community advocates and concerned citizens will unite on Sunday at the Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza to show support for those seeking asylum in our country and to reject the current administration’s continued use of cruel tactics and policies at our borders.
Arizonans of all walks of life are asking that people remain vigilant and engage in an active role to combat the militarization of police, abuses of power, and violations of human rights here in our state and border into 2019 and beyond.
