Indigenous Alliance Without Borders/Alianza Indigena Sin Fronteras campaign to support Indigenous language interpretation and translation for Indigenous Migrants coming through the Southern Arizona borders
The Indigenous Alliance Without Borders is organizing a campaign to support Indigenous language interpretation and translation for the hundreds of Indigenous migrants and visitors coming through the southern Arizona border as they seek to be united with sponsors or request asylum. We are requesting that supporters send gift cards of $25 or $50 from Target or Visa to the Indigenous Alliance, which will be delivered to Indigenous interpreters and translators in the region. Language translation and interpretation are needed for 22 languages in Guatemala, in particular Mam, Kanjobal, Quiche, and Ixil, and 62 languages from Mexico, in particular the Nahuatl and Mixtec languages. The United Nations has declared 2019 the International Year of Indigenous Languages. Please support our relatives’ rights to understand their rights in their own language. The gift cards should be mailed to the Indigenous Alliance Without Borders, 225 E. 26th St. #3, Tucson, Az 85713.
