This year, leading up to Día de los Muertos, the Colibrí Center for Human Rights launches our new campaign, ¿Cuántos más?. Since 1998, at least, 7,805 human beings have lost their lives while attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. Of these, over 3,241 have died in southern Arizona as of October 8, 2020. The crisis continues growing. Colibrí’s mission is to promote healing and change by working with families of missing migrants to identify and honor the dead on the U.S.-Mexico border. We believe that no human being should lose their life crossing the border and no family should experience the pain of searching for a loved one who has disappeared. We ask that you join us in honoring and demanding justice for missing migrants and their families. $30, including U.S. shipping.
“MIGRAR ES AMAR” T-SHIRT
We chose to design this t-shirt with the phrase “migrar es amar” or “to migrate is to love” because we believe that migrants and their families exemplify the verb “to love”. Migration is an act of radical love: love for one’s family that drives us to labor to support them or bring them to a place where they might have a chance to thrive, and the love for one’s self that helps us believe in seeking a better, safer future. Tragically, for too many people, this act has resulted in death and disappearance, forcing families into the devastatingly painful position of searching for answers about those they care about most. Though tragic, the process of searching is itself an act of profound love. At Colibrí, we work to accompany families in this act of love, partnering with them to find the answers they need to reunite with a missing loved one. Our work is built on that tenacious belief that, as human beings, we all deserve a reality where human rights are protected, families are respected, and migration is safe so no one loses their lives. We hope you join us in spreading the message that to migrate is to love. Migrar es amar. $30, including U.S. shipping.
Colibrí's "The Things They Carried: A Monument to Lost Lives on the Border". For the families of migrants who have lost their lives crossing the US-Mexico border, the items carried by their loved ones have special significance. The items take on an excess of meaning beyond their original materiality. These items not only carry an emotional, almost sacred existence, but, for the thousands of grieving families searching for answers, these items could be the link that finally brings the remains of their loved one home to rest. $ 30, including shipping to the US
The Colibrí Center for Human Rights sticker measures 3 inches in diameter and can be found, among other places, on every laptop computer and water bottle in the Colibrí office. $10, including U.S. shipping.
