No more deaths

No one should have to risk death in their search for a better life. Nor should anyone be punished for trying to save lives.

Yet 8000 people have died on our Southern border since the 1990s. And now, unbelievably, people are facing prosecution for helping those in need.

Volunteers from our organization, No More Deaths/No Más Muertes, hike year-round along remote trails in the Arizona section of the Sonoran Desert, which spans Arizona, California and northwestern Mexico. We leave water, food, blankets and other basic necessities along the desert’s migration corridors.

But the federal government is trying to make our humanitarian aid criminal.

Trials begin next Tuesday, January 15. This government would outlaw human kindness. We will not be intimidated.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Call Elizabeth Strange, First Assistant US Attorney for Arizona, at (520) 620-7419, and ask her to drop all charges against the nine No More Deaths volunteers. There’s a sample script here.
