Proyecto Cartas/Project Letters

A blogger colleague recently hung a new blog called Project Letters (Proyecto Cartas) to encourage all of us to write the President on February 12 to ask for thorough, humane, and sane immigration reform (my adjectives).

Although I'm sure that he would welcome all letters encouraging just and compassionate immigration reform, from the tone of his model letter, I believe that he would especially encourage personal appeals rather than the usual brief political paragraph--letters that paint for the new President our unique individual feelings of horror, shame, and agony at the current inhumane treatment of Hispanics and Latinos in the USA.

Please visit this site when you have a moment, and lend a pen to this worthy cause. The site is available in Spanish and in English.

Update on Project Letters.

The target date is quickly approaching. We are asking that all letters be sent on February 12, 2009 to our President Barack Obama. All letters asking for immigration reform.

We have a press conference scheduled for February 10, 2009 at the Arizona State Capitol on the Senate Lawn. This will take place at 2:200 PM.

We also have a press conference scheduled for 11:00 AM on February 12, 2009 at the Main Post Office in Phoenix at 4949 E. Van Buren Street. All those who have been receiving letters from other will be there to launch their letters to the White House.

I received an email from a gentleman that has been working on the Obama transition team and he congratulated us for our efforts and invited us to participate in further discussions regarding issues affecting our community.

We appreciate all your support.
