In Tucson, Arizona, tireless human rights defenders continue, with their live and let live philosophy. From rescuing dying migrants at the border, to fighting the Keystone XL pipeline, to Raging Grannies taking on Obama for broken promises, Tucson is a singular place. The Hopi Foundation's Owl and Panther program is a place of poetry and arts for children victims of torture and exile, while Iskashitaa Refugee Network is "Harvesting Hope and Empowering Dreams," with handcrafts by refugee women. Working for global peace, and battling open pit mining, Rosemont copper mine, and the TPP, the struggles continues in Tucson.
