Tucson Families Free & Together Kick-off Party & Pop Up Shop

    “Join us for the official kick-off party of the Tucson Families Free & Together sanctuary city initiative! We will have music, food, and a pop-up shop of independent Tucson makers starting at 2PM with speakers and press conference starting at 4PM.

    This grassroots campaign is completely people-led and we need your help and support to create a Tucson which protects and uplifts everyone, regardless of their immigration status. We will have petition packets and short 10 minute orientations available throughout the event for those who would like to help us gather signatures.

    Please visit our website to learn more and to donate or to sign up to volunteer: https://www.familiesfreeandtogether.org/”
