The National Organization for Women (NOW) and Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), in collaboration with our coalition partners, are hosting an “Unlock the Future” campaign rally for immigrant rights in Phoenix. Those fleeing to the U.S. are often seeking refuge from sexual violence, assault and poverty and they deserve a fair and humane immigration process. If they are to be held in detention facilities, at a minimum, we have an obligation to give them access to vital human needs such as reproductive health care, feminine hygiene products and mental health care, among other provisions. .
Joining NOW President Toni Van Pelt will be:
o State Senator Victoria Steele, Representative for the 9th District of Arizona
o Erika Andiola, Chief of Advocacy, RAICES
o Imelda Omega, Latin Therapists Action Network; and
o Additional Speakers to be Announced
