ABOUT

A diverse cross section of organizations and leaders have come together to form the AZ-CA Humanitarian Coalition, an interconnected network responding to the migrant humanitarian crisis. This AZ-CA Humanitarian Coalition provides critical support to migrants at various stages of their journey. Through collaboration with other humanitarian groups, we partner with other more established networks across Arizona and California to form an interconnected chain of partners providing support. Through this collaborative approach, the AZ-CA Humanitarian Coalition provides critical support relief by streamlining rapid response efforts and advocating for a humanitarian response to migrants. The AZ-CA Humanitarian Coalition seeks to provide a welcoming experience to families traumatized by the migrant journey.

 

The AZ-CA Humanitarian Coalition coordinates transit to migrant shelters across Arizona and California. Unfortunately, Yuma County does not have an established migrant shelter to support this humanitarian need. The AZ-CA Humanitarian Coalition also provides other critical support to migrants — such as food, water, hygiene kits, baby supplies, clothing — in addition to first aid and medical services, including offering rapid Covid-19 testing.

The AZ-CA Humanitarian Coalition's Three Pronged Approach:

1) Coordinate with shelters to transport migrants.

2) Collaborate with local city officials to open a temporary welcoming center (a one-stop center for migrants after their release); work with local agencies and volunteers to operate a temporary welcoming center.

3) Advocate for a dignified humanitarian approach to migrant releases. To that end, advocate for increased resources and a change in local release strategy.

Campesinos Sin Fronteras serves as the fiscal sponsor for this project.
