Since 1994, Tent City has been violating human rights. On July 12th, 2014, when the temperature in Phoenix hit 118 °F, Arpaio measured the temperature inside Tent City and bragged to reporters it was 145 °F inside the tents. Some inmates complained that fans near their beds were not working, and that their shoes were melting from the heat. If you’re cold and wet today as the weather has changed, imagine what it's like to be in tent city, join us to demand new sheriff elect Penzone to shut it down immediately.
Why is this important?
Arpaio has punished people while abusing his power and build fear for migrant communities. Sign to insure Tent City is closed forever and urge Penzone to set an example to do what is right for the people in Maricopa County. Arpaio will not be completely gone until his policies of dehumanization and abuse are gone with him.
