This Tucson Families Free & Together is a grassroots, people-led effort spearheaded by People’s Defense Initiative with dozens of community groups signed on as endorsing partners. As a true testament to the decades of Tucson resistance, the objective of our flagship campaign is to uplift policies which ensure that our local government is committed to protecting and defending all people and upholding the self-evident truths that all people are created equal and endowed with the unalienable rights of life and liberty. Let’s boldly say that our local government will not be complicit in a federal effort to destroy our communities.

Now is the time for a sensible city ordinance that reflects the current-day needs of our community and embraces our proud legacy of social justice and human rights.
