Driven by economic inequality, thwarted by ill-conceived US border policy, and the harsh conditions of the Sonoran Desert, more than 2000 men, women, and children have died trying to cross the Mexican border into the United States since 1998. Most of the deaths occurred in the brutal heat of the summer months.
No More Deaths is an organization whose mission is to end death and suffering on the U.S./Mexico border through civil initiative: the conviction that people of conscience must work openly and in community to uphold fundamental human rights.
Volunteers spend months in the Arizona Sonora desert providing lifesaving humanitarian assistance to migrants. To their speaking engagements, they bring on-the-ground stories about the real impacts of U.S. immigration and trade policy.
No More Deaths works to provide water, food, and medical assistance to migrants walking through the most deadly portions of the Arizona desert; to monitor US operations on the border and work to change US policy to resolve the "war zone" crisis on the border; and to bring the plight of migrants to public attention.
