As CCR’s Senior Staff Attorney Rachel Meeropol argues Blum v. Holder before the First Circuit Court of Appeals,  activists are packing the courtroom in support. For those who can’t be there, you can share this new video by the plaintiffs, and use the hashtag #AETAspeakout to raise awareness of this dangerous legislation.

Here’s a full list of articles and resources on the AETA. Speak up today!
