March 3rd, 2017: Stop HB 63!
 
Help us to stop House Bill 63, which would criminalize undocumented community members who are contributing to our state by creating felony charges for minor offenses, preventing undocumented community members from being able to post bond if accused of a crime, and putting community members at risk for deportation by unnecessarily revealing their immigration status in unrelated court proceedings, among other provisions. Click here to sign our petition in opposition to this bill, which will be heard on Tuesday, March 7th in Judiciary II at 1:00 PM in 421 LOB. Click here for a list of the members of the committee that is hearing the bill, so you can call them and ask them to stop this harmful piece of legislation.

While we are investigating the implications of these bills and their progress through the General Assembly, it is important that we continue to resist bigotry in all forms across our state. We have seen success stories in recent years of the power of protest and lobbying, and El Pueblo is committed to helping community members make their voices heard in this struggle for positive change. Please stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, and www.elpueblo.org for regular updates on this proposed legislation.
