In an effort to protect immigrant rights, we want to bring your attention to an award-winning film that is now free to watch and share on SnagFilms.com.

9500 Liberty documents the first time in United States’ history that an Arizona-style immigration law was actually implemented. For eight weeks, Prince William County, Virginia adopted a law requiring the police to question people who appeared to be undocumented immigrants. When the local economy was hit hard by the sudden exodus of workers, consumers and business owners, even vocal supporters of the law began to reconsider the effectiveness of such a policy.

If this critical film is in line with the work you’re doing, I’d love to discuss the ways in which you can share it with your audience for free. Please help us inform the debate about immigration reform, especially as this election season heats up, and spread the word about the hard lessons learned in Prince William County, Virginia.
