Today, the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice (ACIJ) will be hosting a series of events to kick off their campaign against HB 56. With eleven members of Congress scheduled to attend, it’s certain to be a day of intensity and energy.
Even though you might not be in Alabama, here are five easy ways that you can support immigrant rights advocates in the Yellowhammer State:
1) Check out the schedule of the launch events, here.
2) Tune into U-Stream and live-tweet as you watch, using the hashtag #CrisisAL.
3) Follow them on twitter @ALimmigrant, and retweet to your followers. The Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice will be tweeting throughout the day.
4) Change your Facebook profile picture to this image, and show solidarity (it’s the image to the right.)
5) Check the ACIJ facebook page periodically through the day for pictures and videos, and blog them!
We’ll be cross-posting stuff from the ACIJ website to our own all day, so feel free to do the same!
