Arizona Justice For Our Neighbors mourns the loss of the 53 souls who were abandoned in a tractor trailer in San Antonio, Texas. We recognize the dignity and humanity of each individual lost and we mourn their lost hopes and dreams.
This is the most dangerous time for migrants to enter the United States and we recognize the desperation that many migrants face. All human beings regardless of where they are from, deserve the right to provide for themselves and their family, including being able to seek freedom in the United States.
We invite you to join us for a vigil to honor their memory and lives on Thursday, July 7th at 7:00 pm at El Tiradito, 418 S. Main Ave, Tucson, AZ 85701. Sign up for our email or follow us on social media to stay informed.

Last Friday—June 24, 2022—our nation’s highest court overturned Roe v. Wade (1973) ending nearly 50 years of constitutional precedent. The ruling came in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which concerned a Mississippi law prohibiting almost all abortions past the 15th week of pregnancy.
