Racism Deserves No Pardon Here. Stand With Us!

Wait. The former sheriff and prominent Trump supporter needs a pardon? Sure thing. Arpaio was convicted just last year of criminal contempt after he defied court orders to cease his racial profiling and cease the rounding up of people he profiled for possible immigration concerns. Let’s be clear. Arpaio targeted people based on race, rounded them up and ignored federal court orders to stop. Trump seems to value the loyalty Arpaio showed for him beyond the freedom, safety and lives of those Arpaio profiled or the Arizona citizens who fought long and hard to see the law-breaking Sheriff held to account. Trumps pardons racism, if and when he pardons Arpaio on Tuesday.
If you want to show solidarity in Phoenix, join PDA Arizona head and national staffer Dan O’Neal, along with our Advisory Board Member US House Rep. Raul Grijalva who will anchoring peaceful protest in the area.
Trump: No Pardon For White Supremacy Rally
Trump will be there rallying the mongers, and and we want to send a very clear message that we will not pardon white supremacy the way he has with #Charlottesville and now with Joe #Arpaio.
