RNSD-2

San Diego, CA As the Supreme Court prepares to hear and review President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, local leaders are launching a new campaign to prepare San Diego’s diverse immigrant communities for administrative relief and more.

The Ready Now San Diego campaign is providing resources for all of San Diego’s diverse immigrant communities. This includes a new website translatable in many languages with information about immigration assistance and programs currently available to them including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, citizenship, driver’s licenses for undocumented residents and legal assistance to apply for these programs.

Today, one of the most thought-provoking books of the year is coming out – Brown is the New White: How the Demographic Revolution Has Created a New American Majority by national political leader and civil rights lawyer Steve Phillips.

This new book is a compelling call-to-action to the entire progressive movement that says progressive whites and communities of color – the New American Majority – will determine the outcome of the 2016 Election.

In his book, Phillips drives home the fact that the New American Majority makes up 51% of all eligible voters. This majority has the ability to make significant change in our elections. Alliance San Diego has been contacting New American Majority voters since 2009 in an effort to create a democracy that represents the values of all San Diegans.

This is the book we’ve all been waiting for. To help build this movement and make the New American Majority a priority this election year, we’re inviting you to buy a copy (and copies for your friends and family as well).

For every book you purchase from now until February 6, Alliance San Diego will receive a $10 donation from a generous anonymous donor. Thank you!
