Below are details of an initiative which deserves support:

Who are We? What is our Statement of Purpose?

Defend Our Neighbors is a non-partisan grassroots effort lead by concerned citizens to ensure that we, as a community, actively support the rights of the New Mexico undocumented immigrant children & their families to live without fear, without oppression, and with a right to due process regarding their ability to remain in the United States.

Defend Our Neighbors believes supporting undocumented immigrants (as the most vulnerable of our communities under threat of persecution) is a significant moral duty.

Finally, we believe that not challenging threats to one part of our community can lead to threats to other parts of our community: the Muslim community, the LGBT community, the Native American community, the Jewish community, other communities of color and even the Media. We believe we must actively challenge possible threats to our diverse social fabric.

What is our Goal?

To generate a comprehensive list of community individuals and organizations by January 20, 2017 who support the Defend Our Neighbors Statement of Purpose
above. It is our intent to publish this list of supporters in the Albuquerque Journal
on or before February 1, 2017.

Defend Our Neighbors Steering Committee:
Jeffrey Baker
Jennifer Landau
John Ross
Maria Estella de Rios
Liz McGrath
Antoinette Sedillo-Lopez
Art Gardenswartz
Justin Remer-Thamert

ARE YOU WITH US?
If you support the Statement of Purpose, you can do so as an Individual, as an Organization, or both:
