Since the passage of Arizona’s SB 1070 last year, the country has been in a debate about which direction to go in. One that offers inclusion and real solutions, or the smokescreen of attrition seen in the acts of Sheriff Arpaio and others. As 1070 copycats spread across the country and federal policies like “secure communities” expands the Arizonification of the US, the national Turning the Tide campaign has linked grassroots groups in a united effort.

This summer, Turning the Tide is organizing the Georgia Summer of Human Rights to accompany on-the-ground organizing by local groups. Learn about the broader moment, movement, and how to get involved.
