Tucson City Councilor Regina Romero & Faith Community Representatives
Invite Public to Forum on SB 1070 with Police Chief Roberto Villaseñor

Tucson City Councilor Regina Romero and a diverse coalition of
faith-based community representatives are inviting the public to a
forum
on the City of Tucson’s response to SB 1070.

The forum was established following Mayor and Council’s declaration
of Tucson as an “Immigrant Welcoming City” earlier this year. Part
of the resolution, which passed by a 6-1 vote, established a public
dialogue on racial profiling and the implementation of SB 1070, as
well
as what it means for our community.

The forum will be held on Tuesday, September 25th from 5:30 - 7:30 pm
at Most Holy Trinity Parish, 1300 N. Greasewood.

Tucson Police Chief Villaseñor and City Attorney Mike Rankin will
discuss SB 1070 and what it means for public safety and the City of
Tucson. Individuals will have the opportunity to ask questions,
including what our rights are under the law.

What: Community Forum in Response to SB 1070
When: Tuesday, September 25th 2012 - 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Where: Most Holy Trinity Parish, 1300 N. Greasewood

The forum comes days after Judge Susan Bolton lifted of her original
injunction on SB1070, allowing section 2b of the law to go into
effect.
This section is knows as the “papers please” provision, and has
been
considered one of the most controversial conditions of the law.

The U.S. Department of Justice and civil rights groups have both set
up
hotlines to document racial profiling, and are asking individuals to
report the violation of civil liberties.

The DOJ hotline phone number is 1-855-353-1010, and the email is

The ACLU hotline number is 1-855-RESPETO or 1-855-737-7386.
