STATE CAPITOL, Phoenix – Sen. Richard Miranda (D-Phoenix) will be a speaker at the 81st Annual League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) National Convention and Exposition on Friday, July 16, in Albuquerque, N.M. Miranda will be speaking on a panel at 2:30 p.m. entitled “Unite Arizona: The Campaign Against SB 1070.”
“We need to focus on creating real and workable reform, not just mean-spirited legislation that comes at the cost of civil rights and breaking community relations with police,” said Miranda, Co-Chair of the Arizona Legislative Latino Caucus. “Proponents of the bill continue to spread false statements about the bill and what is required of law enforcement. It is time to set the record straight.”
Founded in 1929, LULAC is a national organization dedicated to issues such as civil rights, civic participation, economic empowerment, education, housing and immigration.
