Last summer dozens of undocumented parents, workers and students set off on a bus tour across the southern part of the country on the 'No Papers No Fear Ride for Justice.'  The Undocubus traveled from Arizona to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Charlotte, North Carolina to challenge anti-immigrant laws and peel away the fear that draconian immigration laws have imbedded in our community.  

Since returning home, riders and participating organizations have continued organizing and fighting deportations in our communities.  We have watched, as have many, the debate on how to reform our immigration system.  We have been hopeful.  But we have also grown weary of the political games both Republicans and Democrats play with our lives.  And we will not overlook the role and responsibility President Obama with respect to his Administration's policies and record breaking deportations.  We ask, what will come first: 2 million people deported or inclusive immigration reform?  For this reason, we've decided to ride again.  

Our goal is to raise $18,000 to jump start our journey.  

The funds will go towards the costs of the bus tour - materials, food, transportation, etc.  But before we hit the road again, we've got to get our bus running.  Earlier this year 'Priscila the Undocubus' was vandalized and needs interior and mechanical work done.  Community members, mechanics, carpenters, artists have all committed to help.  It was community support that made the tour successful the first time, it will be community that makes sure the Undocubus will be a vehicle for justice once again.  That community includes you.
