THE STORY:

Many of you may be aware of the work I have done and continue to do for and with the Latino immigrant community. From my Latino Studies courses and activism at Ithaca College, to working at a Philadelphia based immigration law firm, and now using my web design studies at Moore College of Art and Design to work on projects aiming to educate and centralize information for the Latino immigrant community, it is safe to say that I have found my passion in life. 

It has been a goal of mine to spend time in the borderlands in order to better serve the Latino community. Therefore, I have decided to spend a week in March working closely with the humanitarian organization No Mas Muertes/No More Deaths in the Sonoran desert in Arizona.

The mission of No Mas Muertes is to end death and suffering in the Mexico–US borderlands through civil initiative: people coming together and working openly and in community to uphold fundamental human rights. Since 2004, No Mas Muertes has conducted a spring volunteer program during the month of March.

As a spring volunteer, I will spend a week in the Sonoran desert providing direct humanitarian aid to migrants coming through the harshest stretch of their journey to the United States.

This is my invitation to you to be a part of my journey in the Sonoran desert by giving to a cause that will continue to aid migrants by providing water and medical help through volunteerism. Your gift of $20 will support volunteers like myself with travel costs, camping, desert training supplies, food and volunteer coordination.
