Raúl Alcaraz Ochoa is an amazing organizer in the city of Tucson, fighting for the health of his community, an end to discrimination against all people on the basis of race/ethnicity/gender identity/sexual orientation/etc/etc/etc, and a halt to deportations of undocumented community members. His birthday is Wednesday, Feb. 26th, and all he asks is for donations to the Southside Worker Center! I've written a little about the Worker Center, but it is a center through Southside Presbyterian Church to organize day laborers in Tucson (primarily men who are undocumented), to negotiate with employers for fair wages and labor conditions, and to build a network of community support to call into action especially when a community member is harassed, detained, or facing deportation.
Thing is, they need some more funds, and fast. Check out Raul's video and how to donate here: http://www.gofundme.com/70ochw Please consider donating today and helping the Worker Center continue their work to make Tucson a healthier and safer community - and give Raul a happy birthday!
This is just one of my pictures of Raul being amazing, leading a rally in response to police brutality against peaceful resistance to the detention of four community members.
