Phoenix, Arizona 85004
Concerning the recent signing of Arizona's SB 1070 by the governor, Jan Brewer, I am informing you that:
1. I have cancelled attendance to one convention being held in Tempe this month as well as 2 other meetings through the year to be held in Phoenix and Tucson.
2. I will not purchase anything from any retail or wholesale dealer, distributor or any company based in Arizona whether it be goods or services.
3. I have promises from family and friends to follow suit and will continue to work hard to bring strong economic pressure on the state of Arizona through full boycott as long as the state CONTINUES to promote blatant racial profiling and discriminatory actions against immigrants and citizens that are being singled out by the recent legislation.
The action of the government run by Governor Brewer is deplorable.
Since the state's representatives have no respect for human rights, those of us who do will cease to acknowledge the existence of the state by refusing to travel, through, or in (even layovers) Arizona; purchase anything from its businesses; or acknowledge sporting events, conferences, meetings or any other events based in the state until the state removes this heinous law from its books and works to restore human rights and understanding as a priority.
