On November 2, people throughout the Americas celebrated Day of the Dead, remembering their loved ones. In Tucson, another annual commemoration of those who have passed, the All Souls Procession, is a community mass-participation event that borrows heavily from the Day of the Dead tradition. As they do every year, No More Deaths volunteers and supporters will be marching in the Procession this Sunday specifically to memorialize those who lost their lives crossing the Arizona desert this year.
We have expanded our work to the Sonoyta–Lukeville–Ajo corridor, one of the deadliest parts of the Arizona border, and we need your support now more than ever to get water, food, blankets, and emergency care to those in distress.
Please donate today to support the work of No More Deaths/No Más Muertes to ease the suffering of those fleeing violence in Central America and Mexico and seeking to reunite with their families and loved ones.
Right after Thanksgiving, watch our Twitter and Facebook pages for links to our “Giving Tuesday” appeal. Help us to spread the word about the domestic refugee crisis and what your community can do to help.
