Puente Human Rights Movement is a grassroots human rights organization centered on improving the quality of life for Arizona’s most marginalized communities. Their mission is to educate, organize, and empower our communities to unite and build political power in a collective effort to bring about lasting change to our state. They envision a world where all people have the right to a good quality of life and are treated with dignity. They are privileged in their ability to assist community members through various services such as food banks and cultural and spiritual healing sessions, along with legal assistance for DACA, Asylum, Deportation, and Criminal Justice cases. They help people in any way they can, though the fees and costs associated with the legal services that they provide are unbudgeted and can range from hundreds of dollars to thousands depending on the case. The UU’s contribution to these applications will make a big difference in the lives of our loved ones and our organization overall!
