MySpace and the Immigration Debate

Last week, National Public Radio reported on how MySpace is being used by students to organize against HR 4437. Listen to "Text Message, MySpace Roots of Student Protests" http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5309238

The Detention Watch Network, a national coalition which AFSC belongs to, set up a profile on MySpace to reach out to the hundreds of students who are stepping up to voice their concerns about immigration reform proposals. Over the weekend, the profile was viewed by 95 people. DWN now has 64 friends in several states and belong to over 31 groups. Check it out at http://www.myspace.com/detentionwatchnetwork


1. Join MySpace (if you haven't already) for free. Add DWN as a friend and tell your friends to join.

2. Share the DWN MySpace profile web address with students you know who are interested in immigration reform and need information sources.
