We are happy to announce that we have posted the application for the May 2015 session of our Desert-Aid Volunteer Program. This is a new volunteer opportunity we are offering during the times of year when our spring and summer programs are not running.
No More Deaths is honored to be the recipient of funding from the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. The Fund comes out of a settlement arising from the 2007 arrests of journalists Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin by Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Phoenix. We are grateful for the Fund’s grant, which is supporting our efforts across all of our projects to end death and suffering in the desert.
