This week marks five years since Arizona’s Governor Brewer signed SB1070 into law on April 23, 2010.
Since that time a national movement has emerged with Arizona at its epicenter confronting the Arpaio’s in our own backyards. As we march with Puente to launch its ICE Free AZ campaign and strategize the next generation of resistance against criminalization, you can be a part of it even if you’re not in Phoenix.

The development of comites populares (people’s committees) is one of GLAHR’s principle methods for raising the political consciousness of Latino immigrants and building organized Latino communities across Georgia. These comites populares are grassroots groups that educate and organize Latino immigrants to defend and advance their civil and human rights, and that develop leaders within the community to advocate for social justice.
In addition to learning about anti-immigrant legislation and practices within the comites, Latinos also learn self-defense strategies and how to engage in political activism and acts of civil disobedience to advocate for civil rights and immigration reform. Especially important, community members build networks of support and shared experiences through the comites populares—providing the most marginalized members with a sense of community and access to crucial information about the national and local immigration scene.
To date, GLAHR has developed 19 comites populares throughout Georgia:
Waycross, Lake Park, Moultrie, Tifton, Cordele, Albany, Americus, Savannah, Statesboro, Glenville, Warner Robins, Fairburn, Thomson, Hampton, Atlanta, Doraville, Conyers, Alpharetta, and Forest Park.
GLAHR offers a "hotline" that provides Latino immigrants and their families, in the event that they are mistreated, abused, or detained, with information and referrals. Each week, the hotline receives anywhere from fifty to one hundred calls, allowing GLAHR to assist Latinos as they face abuse from employers, police officers, immigration agents, or in detention centers.
