Support Immigration Reform Wear the official COMPASSION BRACELET A UNIVERSAL SYMBOL OF PEACE AND UNITY for the development of Effective Change.
Just as the handshake symbolizes an offer of peace, trust, unity of purpose and civility, so the Responsible Immigration Reform (RIR) symbol offers a peaceful, civil call to action through unity of purpose. As millions flooded the streets of American cities in peaceful protest against the inhumane "Sensenbrenner Bill" demonstrating their economic, political and social power, the RIR symbol harnesses and demonstrates the power of peaceful protest in a call to action, by mobilizing the purchasing power of the collective consumer. The RIR Symbol denotes a positive association with over 100 million consumers (12 million undocumented workers and associated family and community rlationships of 90 million) who will voice their support and protest through their buying power and boycotting action. Your company's association with the RIR symbol denotes your friendship, civility and support of Responsible Immigration Reform and directs the consumer's call to action.
Conversely, consumers in support of Responsible Immigration Reform will be directed to buy products and support global companies and local merchants who are associated with the RIR symbol of unity and call to peaceful resolution to immigration problems. Products with the RIR symbol will be preferred by the 100 million consumers and all other supporters of Responsible Immigration Reform. Products without the RIR symbol will be overlooked.
Juan Jose Gutierrez - is the face of immigration reform in partnership with RIR. Gutierrez regularly appears on hundreds of media outlets including major television networks, news magazines and rallies worldwide. Gutierrez has devoted over twenty years to immigration reform and is considered the leading expert and "go to guy" on immigration issues and their economic, social and political impact. Gutierrez has contributed greatly to the branding of the RIR symbol by promoting the unifying symbol and generating web site exposure through his hundreds of hours of media coverage. Products without Immigrants will be the cornerstone call to action.
