Speaker
Kate Morgan-Olsen and Rick Cheney, members of the NGO NO More Deaths

 No More Deaths is a volunteer-run organization based in southern Arizona that works to end death and suffering at the US-Mexico border through direct action.
No More Deaths provides humanitarian aid to migrants in the Sonoran Desert and recently deported immigrants, documents abuses of migrants’ human rights, and organizes for immigrant and border justice.
This presentation will offer firsthand 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 time for questions during which we look forward to opening a more comprehensive dialogue about our southern border.
