Call-In Campaign – Drop the Charges Against #TheArizona3
April 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
TELL COUNTY ATTORNEY BARBARA LAWALL TO DROP THE CHARGES ON #THEARIZONA3
On March 19, 2019, three brave students protested the presence of Border Patrol at the University of Arizona campus during school hours. Ten days later the three students were charged with misdemeanors.
Mariel Alexandra Bustamante, Marianna Ariel Coles-Curtis and Denisse Moreno Melchor have been charged with “Interference with the Peaceful Conduct of an Educational Institution” for expressing their right to free speech in the institution they attend. Denisse Moreno has an additional charge of “Threats and intimidation”.
We are going to call Barbara Lawall everyday until she drops the charges before their court date on April 22nd and April 26th.
When you speak to a county official (or leave a message), you can use the following sample script:
Hello my name is _____________________. I’m calling to express my deep concern and outrage regarding the three University of Arizona students who been charged for their peaceful protest on March 19, 2019.
