No Hate in CO State – Immigrants Are Welcome Here!

March 14 @ 11:45 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Colorado is facing one of the most anti-immigrant bills of the past decade. HB18-1178, introduced by Representative Dave Williams from Colorado Springs, seeks to claw back some of the most important victories of the immigrant rights movement.

Specifically, Representative Williams seeks to:
-Bring back the SB-90 Show Me Your Papers Law, forcing local law-enforcement agents to investigate immigration status in routine policing operations.
-Punish elected officials with a class 4 felony for voting to protect non-citizens.
-Allow victims of crimes committed by non-citizens in cities and counties that have passed policies to protect the constitution to sue elected officials for damages and compensation.

We will be holding a rally & press conference at the Capitol’s West Foyer (at the foot of the main steps on the first floor) at 12:00 pm to show Rep. David Williams that Colorado will not stand for this bigotry and xenophobia that damages our values as Coloradans and residents of this community.

HB-1178 will be heard in the House State Affairs Committee following the rally Wednesday, March 14th at around 3pm. This will be in the Legislative Service Building (200 E 14th Ave, Denver) in room A.
