No More Deaths Seeking Summer Volunteers

Tucson-based human rights organization No More Deaths/No Más Muertes is accepting applications for the 2008 summer season. Volunteers are required to attend a Sunday training session as well as commit to at least one week of participation in their worthy work. There are four main categories of opportunity:
  • Desert Patrols: Provide humanitarian aid and maintain a constant presence in the Southern Arizona desert
  • Aid Stations: Provide humanitarian aid and information and document human rights abuses in Northern Mexico (Requires Spanish skills)
  • Advocacy Projects: Work on current campaigns in Phoenix or Tucson
  • Material Aid Coordination: Acquire and distribute needed donations from Tucson
The application, linked here (.pdf file warning), must also be accompanied by a written statement detailing your interest in volunteering with NMD, expectations you have for the assistance you'll provide, and the skills you will bring to the organization.
