The Florence Project

The Florence Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit legal service organization providing free legal services to men, women, and unaccompanied children in immigration custody in Arizona. Although the government assists indigent criminal defendants and civil litigants through public defenders and legal aid attorneys, it does not provide attorneys for people in immigration removal proceedings. As a result, an estimated 86 percent of the detained people go unrepresented due to poverty. The Florence Project strives to address this inequity both locally and nationally through direct service, partnerships with the community, and advocacy and outreach efforts.

We are Jews and allies who support justice and universal human rights. We believe equality, dignity, and self-determination for all peoples are keys to peace for Israelis and Palestinians.

We are part of a national, grassroots, member-based organization that partners with not only Israeli and Palestinian peace activists, but with a diverse range of groups committed to a just peace. Our political analysis of the conflict in Israel/Palestine is shaped by root causes of occupation, displacement, siege, and consistent human rights violations.

Peace vigils at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base

Why protest at Davis-Monthan AFB? DRONES: Air National Guard troops at Davis-Monthan AFB place Tucson squarely on the global battleground, by remotely piloting UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) that are firing guided bombs and missiles and killing more civilians than targeted "terrorists" in Afghanistan, Iraq Syria, Pakistan and possibly more sovereign nations. Ground the Drones! DEPLETED URANIUM: A-10 warplanes that train out of Davis-Monthan AFB are responsible for the vast majority of radioactive ammunition - estimated at well over 400 tons - used in Iraq since 1991. A recent analysis of targeting data reveals that the toxic ammo was used well beyond its armor-piercing design, and has been used again in Syria in current military operations against ISIS. Iraq is littered with high levels of nuclear and dioxin contamination, including depleted uranium, resulting in greater rates of cancer and birth defects near sites. See www.theguardian.com.

Peace vigils at Raytheon Missile Systems

Join the Raytheon Peacemakers as we demonstrate against war and those who profit from it. Survival demands better ideas, not better weapons. Raytheon Missile Systems is the most profitable division of the war profiteer. With its headquarters and largest factory in Tucson, Raytheon Missile Systems employs about 12,000 of our Southern Arizona friends and neighbors. For more than a decade, Raytheon has hailed Tucson as the Missile Technology Capital of the World - a center for lethal innovation and cutting-edge killing for profit. From Standard Missiles to Star Wars "kill vehicles", Mavericks and AMRAAMs, microwave crowd control beams and pilotless drones, cluster bombs and cruise missiles - it's all made here, some even sold to friends and foes of friends alike. Bomb fragments from a Saudi attack that killed 140 mourners in October at a funeral in Yemen's capitol document their manufacture in Tucson. We do not oppose those working at Raytheon. We understand the need for good paying jobs in Tucson. We oppose the militarism that exploits this need, "developing" our own community at the expense of others around the world. Vigil is at Hermans Road entrance to the plant (3rd traffic light south of Valencia on Nogales Highway, the extension of South 6th Avenue). Park off Nogales Highway, between railroad tracks and highway at the Hermans Road entrance. Signs provided, or bring your own! More info: 323-8697.
