Event Details

Juntos is hosting a Day of Action at the Pennsylvania State Capital in Harrisburg on Monday, May 7th in opposition to Arizona-style legislation. 

SB9, HB 439, and all the E-Verify bills were introduced as anti-immigrant bills in Pennsylvania but in reality they will affect thousands of poor and working families across our state. SB9 if passed will leave many American families vulnerable to poverty and HB 439 could leave many of our local business vulnerable to closure.

E-Verify is an attack on workers who deserve protections and will only make all workers vulnerable to pay decreases and exploitative conditions.  Passing E-Verify will not bring back jobs nor will it decrease the unemployment rate; rather, it will increase it.

Pennsylvania must avoid the mistakes that states before us have made, like Arizona, which endured a $141 million economic loss due to their anti-immigrant legislation SB1070. This kind of legislation will hurt our families, our businesses, and our communities. 

Join us as we tell our legislators to say NO to bills SB9, HB 439, and all the E-verify bills.  Make Pennsylvania really the place where America starts and where all the hate stops!

 

We will depart from Juntos in South Philadelphia (2029 S. 8th St. on the corner of 8th and Snyder) at 9:30am to Harrisburg and returning by 6:00pm.

Get on the bus! Seats are $25 for non-community members and if you cannot attend you can sponser a seat for someone else.  Hope to see you there!
