Pledge to Stand with Immigrant Families: Demand Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Ever since my Grandfather who was raising me and my brother got deported, our lives have not been the same. I want my Grandfather back. And no family should have to go through what my family is going through. So since spring, I spent every afternoon and weekend volunteering with my 13-year-old brother Luis. We walked door to door all summer in the heat, and worked hard all these months to get our community registered and out to vote.

I can’t believe we are all still waiting to find out which candidates won in Arizona.

But I already know who the real winners are. It’s us.

What Luis and I worked so hard for feels really close now. Because we voted, our community has the power now to win real immigration reform.

I got started volunteering because of my grandfather was taken away from us. He worked so hard to raise my brother and me. All he was doing was supporting our family. I don’t want other families to have to go through what my family is still going through. So even though I am only 15 years old, I know I can fight. I fight for him - and for all the families in Arizona, and across the country.

Please sign this pledge to stand with me and all immigrant families to demand comprehensive immigration reform.

I hope you can join me and my brother in what we need to do next.

Tell Arizona's Maricopa County Recorder to correct her false statements and support new voters

Screen_shot_2012-10-18_at_9.20.28_PM.pngThe Maricopa County Recorder’s Office recently made a mistake misinforming Spanish-speaking voters about the date of the General Election this year.

And it doesn’t stop there. County Recorder Helen Purcell appeared on CBS Channel 5 in Phoenix yesterday falsely stating it’s a felony to possess someone else's ballot, challenging the legality of having our volunteers deliver ballots to the Recorder’s Office. It is 100% lawful for someone to deliver your ballot.

We can’t afford “mistakes” this election. Tell the Maricopa County Recorder to correct her false statements and support new voters.

Dear County Recorder Helen Purcell,

The Maricopa County Recorder’s Office recently made a mistake misinforming Spanish-speaking voters about the date of the General Election this year. 

In addition, you appeared on CBS Channel 5 on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 falsely stating that it is a felony to possess someone else's ballot. 

These mistakes are unacceptable. I ask that you retract the false statements you've made, and ensure that your office does everything in its power to encourage full partipation in the General Election on November 6th, 2012.  

Sincerely,
