In advance of Dr. Warren’s felony trial we are asking supporters to help us connect with as many residents of southern Arizona as possible. In April and May we will be venturing outside of Pima county to visit other communities in southern Arizona and talk about the work No More Deaths does. We’re inviting concerned people across the country to phonebank the communities we’ll be visiting to give them a heads up we’ll be coming and ask if they want to show their support by putting out a sign in their yard.
Live in New York? Kentucky? Spain? It doesn’t matter! If you’ve been following from home and wondered what you could do to support, this is your chance. The charges against Dr. Warren threaten not only the work of No More Deaths but borderlands residents as a whole as well as thousands of people across the nation. If it becomes a crime for a humanitarian aid worker to offer water and shelter to those at risk of dying of dehydration and exposure, where will the government draw the line? Will it now become a crime for a food pantry to welcome in the undocumented community? For a doctor to treat an undocumented patient? For a spouse to feed their undocumented partner?
Don’t let the government criminalize basic decency. Support us now.
