Tomorrow (Saturday, May 1, 2010) at 11:00 am there will be a rally at the County Courthouse in downtown Urbana to Protest SB1070. Inform yourself. Read the press release about the rally, become a fan of the IDream Coalition on Facebook, subscribe to the IDream-Illinois blog, and visit the website of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) to view information about immigrants' rights in Illinois and volunteer opportunities.
UIUC Spanish community service-learning students (SPAN 232 & 332): you can attend the rally and count those hours towards your 28 hours of required service learning work by following these instructions.
- Attend the rally. Arrive on time. You can observe or participate; it's up to you.
- Take a picture of yourself at the rally. (This is the only way for me to confirm you attended.)
- Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with your photograph attached, the number of hours you attended the rally and a few sentences describing what you learned at the rally.
- Post your hours on the wiki.
- By getting your CSL hours in this way, you are agreeing to allow me to post your picture and description on this blog.
