About


Who We Are

The Tucson Community Rapid Response network provides a way for people to respond to fear and anxiety in our community as a result of the increase in immigration enforcement and attacks against our communities. We believe in the importance of community presence in order to hold law enforcement accountable. The network provides a 24 hour hotline to immigrants facing arrest by local law enforcement or federal immigration agents.  Upon receiving a call, we dispatch “community observers” to the arrest location to bear witness to the interaction between law enforcement and the detained person. Following the arrest, and or detention, of an individual our “accompaniment volunteers”offer support  to families throughout the detention process.

Vision

Our goal is to mobilize the greater Tucson community in forming an emergency response network, to serve as witnesses to immigration enforcement actions, uphold the rights of immigrants, and provide direct support and connection to resources to affected Tucson residents.

Our Network
Community Observers: The observation team is made up of community observers who respond directly to the site of an arrest. Observers bear witness to immigration enforcement actions and collect data regarding the nature of cross-agency collaboration and enforcement patterns within Tucson’s neighborhoods and roadways. This community effort to document such data is intended to first and foremost provide any information that may be helpful for an individual’s legal process, while also providing data that can be shared back with the community, and used for possible future advocacy campaigns or lawsuits.
Accompaniment Volunteers:  Our accompaniment volunteers make a long-term commitment to be present for the individuals who have experienced arrest and/or detention as well as their families. Their support includes connecting families to existing community resources and organizations, as well as helping families navigate the immigration system.
Administrators: Our administrative team act as the initial point-of-contact for any individuals calling the hotline. They also coordinate community trainings,engage in outreach opportunities, and coordinate the collecting of data.
