No Mas Muertes (No More Deaths) is a humanitarian organization based in southern Arizona with a mission to end death and suffering for migrants traveling across the Sonoran Desert. Volunteers for No Mas Muertes drive out into the desert up to five days a week to leave food and water at drop points along migrant trails.


The relationship between the U.S. Border Patrol and No Mas Muertes is strained: members of the humanitarian organization were arrested and charged with human trafficking in January 2018, and leaked footage shows Border Patrol agents destroying water left for migrants. Read the Hearst Award-winning story by Rebecca Spiess for Cronkite News.
