THE STORY:

Border Action is confronting an ongoing crisis, shattering families and individuals who are losing their loved ones to immigration enforcement apprehension and worse, to the desolate conditions of desert terrain which claims nearly five migrants, attempting to cross, every four days. On behalf of those who are left behind in need of answers to the question, what has become of loved ones who have gone missing, we are developing a Crisis and Information Hotline project. This hotline will establish a referral source to provide location determination data and references regarding migrant deaths and disappearances of undocumented immigrants taken by authorities, as well as grief counseling for the suffering that accompanies this horrendous experience. We intend for this collaborative project to achieve a border-wide, binational effort, utilizing multiple sources across California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas to build a coalition that strengthens our resources. Alongside our sister nonprofit humanitarian aide organization Humane Borders, BAN strives to address this and other critical issues affecting Arizona’s some 400,000 undocumented immigrants and their families who have few places to turn for help.

In the midst of immigration reform, BAN endeavors to expand our integration services program beyond current education-based integration services to provide our members with ESL and Civics classes, including pathway to citizenship instruction. We are also in the process of establishing ourselves as a Board of Immigration Appeals recognized organization to develop a legal assistance program for Arizona immigrants. In addition, the program will launch a project to establish a Latino-based community credit union in Tucson to educate immigrants on the U.S. financial system and provide them with a reliable place to bank.

We need your support now to help our organization realize these ongoing dreams to continue supporting our immigrant populations, who have few other places to turn for help. Support us in our efforts to effect lasting social change and economic opportunity for all!
