NPR on Arizona Artists Boycott

July 25, 2010

On Friday NPR‘s All Things Considered ran a story called “‘Sound Strike’ Targets Arizona Immigration Law”  on artists boycotting Arizona over SB1070. In it they also talked with a number of people in Arizona about it’s effects including myself, Alycia Klein the general manager of Celebrity Theatre, Martin Cizmar of the Phoenix New Times, the lovely Yolanda Bejarano of Snow Songs.

I hope people realize the long term negative effects this law will have to our states reputation regardless of it is over turned or shot down in court.

Thanks to Daniel Kraker for doing a great job on the story.
