SEIU Announces AZ Boycott

On Thursday morning, SEIU Executive Vice President Eliseo Medina joined labor and civil rights leaders to announce that the 2.2 million-member union will boycott conventions and meetings in Arizona in an effort to denounce the extremist, anti-immigrant law, SB1070.

SEIU joins a growing list of organizations and municipalities who are boycotting Arizona, including some unlikely allies from the professional sports community as well.

Despite widespread boycotts of Arizona, costing the tourism industry millions, Republicans are determined to pass anti-immigrant legislation, similar to SB1070, across the country.
