The volunteers of No More Deaths in southern Arizona
No More Deaths has scheduled a speaking tour and it may be coming to a city near you! Please join No More Deaths volunteers as we present "Our View from the Border." This 90-minute presentation will offer first-hand accounts of trends in migration; human rights abuse documentation in Nogales, Sonora; migrant support in the Sonoran desert; and allied movement building in communities throughout Arizona. In addition to the presentation we will hold 30 minutes for questions during which we look forward to opening a more comprehensive dialogue about our southern border.
