On February 8th, Trey Roberts, El Pueblo, Inc., ACLU of North Carolina,and TIPS- This Is Proper Service will partner up on a city wide letter writing event. The event will take place over the course of one day with rotating schedules amongst local businesses in the downtown area. The concept is that for the day, our volunteers will shift amongst downtown's blossoming local businesses and set of letter writing stations for people to visit and write a letter to their representatives regarding SB-145. We will be hosting letter writing stations at the following locations and time: Videri Chocolate Factory - 11am-1pm Jose and Sons - 1pm-3pm The District Raleigh -4pm-6pm Morning Times - 5pm-7pm Person Street Bar - 6pm-8pm Centro - 6pm-8pm Ruby Deluxe - 8pm-10pm Slim's Downtown -10pm-12am A volunteer from the ACLU of North Carolina or El Pueblo, Inc. will be stationed somewhere in the business and will have pen and paper for everyone! We will also be taking up donations to El Pueblo, Inc. to support youth and adult leaders to attend the Unidos US Community Leaders in Action Summit in Washington, DC! SB-145 is one of the major anti-immigrant bills that may be up for consideration during the Legislative Short Session, which will meet throughout the month of may. We don't know exactly which bills may or may not move forward in May. However, now is the time to make our voices heard and let our lawmakers know that we oppose efforts to target undocumented North Carolinian's who work, go to school, and contribute to our communities in countless ways.
