Trail of Dreams

Come join the Trail of Dreams on Monday, May 17th, 2010!
5:00 pm for distributing flyers, 7:00 pm for the game (block seating) @ Sun Life Stadium, 2267 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami, FL 33056

As national outrage builds against Arizona’s unjust and discriminatory SB 1070 law, a powerful and diverse coalition of South Florida synagogues, churches, community, cultural, advocacy and labor organizations will hold a press conference to announce two calls to action: to conduct an informational action at the Marlins vs. Diamondbacks game on Monday, May 17th and call for the 2011 Major League All Star Game to be pulled from Arizona unless SB 1070 is overturned.

We are calling for the 2011 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, presently scheduled to be played in Phoenix, AZ, the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, to be relocated unless SB 1070 is overturned by the Arizona State Legislature and Governor. As opposition to the legislation builds from the MLB Players Association, team managers, players and sports commentators, coalitions from across the country will continue to take action wherever the Arizona Diamondbacks travel.
