Better late than never- speak out Oklahoma
We've been covering the atrocious Oklahom state bill 1804 for the last few months. This legislation is harsher than any other state legislation we've seen thus far. If this passes- it could very well be in your state, or a state near you very soon- WE ALL need to mobilize to kill this where it stands. Here is a call to action from LULAC, though many calls were made last week, it's never too late to voice your concern to the governor's office. If you can help in any way, please contact LULAC oklahoma, information below.
From LULAC Oklahoma:
Please see the enclosed Call Alert that we have developed to generate calls to the Governor's office. Timing is extremely important.

LULAC Councils Join Together, Demands to Put an End to Oklahoma HB 1804!
WHAT: The Oklahoma League of United Latin American Citizens and its allies are calling on you to urge their Governor to halt anti-immigration legislation before it turns into law. The Oklahoma legislature sent Governor Brad Henry a very destructive and mean-spirited anti-immigration bill, Oklahoma Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act of 2007, HB 1804. This bill promises to open the doors to wide-spread discrimination in the state, as well as opening up the state government to a host of potential lawsuits. They need your help to stop this hateful bill from becoming law! Although the governor has given no clear indication of how he would respond,the bill is expected to cross his desk this week. As of Friday April 20th, the governor has ten days to act. Time is short, so please call TODAY!
WHEN: Tuesday, April 24, 2007 - Next Week
HOW: Connect to Governor Henry's office.
<http://my.lulac.org/site/R?i=1pKL-kKtWnAhyC3GJqAJpw..> Once connected, tell him that this bill will not bring any positive solutions to his state and will only bring negative consequences.
