ACTION: Tell your local Radio DJ to stop supporting Hate!
Next week FAIR (the Federation for American Immigration Reform), will be hosting their annual "Hold their feet to the fire" event in Washington, DC.
FAIR (the Federation for American Immigration Reform), a national anti-immigrant organization, is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Every year FAIR hosts a two-day event that is touted as "Talk Radio's Annual Drive for Immigration Reform". What this really means is lots of angry "ginning up" of radio-listeners about "illegals" and two days filled with not-so-veiled racism and hate.
When people stop to wonder why hate crimes against Latinos have rocketed to terrifying rates in the past few years, let's make sure they start to draw the connection between violence and hate speech perpetuated by events like this.
Act NOW and call your local DJ to tell them you don't want them to support HATE!
