Dear friends of No More Deaths,
Throughout this year, you have been steadfast in your support for humanitarian aid on the Mexico–US border. We celebrate your solidarity, which is a critical piece of the resistance to the Trump administration’s racist, colonialist, and anti-immigrant policies.
A difficult year
Across the country, we are witnessing attacks on immigrants, people of color, the poor, women, LGBTQI people, and all whose lives intersect across these identities.
Law enforcement continues to threaten the right to lifesaving water, food, and medical aid.
In southern Arizona, we continue to witness the deadly consequences of more than twenty years of border militarization and mass deportation. Emboldened by the new administration, the Border Patrol raided our humanitarian-aid camp this summer, arresting undocumented migrants who were receiving medical attention during a heat wave. Law enforcement continues to threaten the right to lifesaving water, food, and medical aid.
More US residents targeted
As ICE raids target undocumented communities across the country, we see more and more US residents in shelters in northern Mexico and on the migrant trails, attempting to return to their lives and families here. Our legal clinic, run by undocumented Tucson residents, is devising creative strategies to stop deportations and keep families united.
Your help is vital
We are in deep gratitude for your care and commitment during these times, and we are honored to share with you our accomplishments over the last year. Please consider a year-end gift to No More Deaths.
You can donate online or by check. All contributions are tax-deductible.
