Monday March 12th is the first day of the Hazleton, PA trial. This is the first trial in the country on a local anti-immigrant ordinance. Dozens of local ordinances have been passed in the country (many of them in Pennsylvania), and still more have been placed on hold, pending the outcome of this trial. What happens in the Scranton court room could determine the fate of anti-immigrant ordinances in communities across the nation.
The trial will start at 8:30 a.m. If you are able, please come during the day and support the plaintiffs through your presence in the courtroom.
At 3:00, we will gather on the steps of the courthouse for a short program
Bring friends, family, and please help spread the word to your networks! Philadelphia rides are being coordinated, Contact Regan Cooper at: firstname.lastname@example.org
