Justice for All Petition at Headquarters

PIMA COUNTY JUSTICE FOR ALL is asking our community to support a 2024 ballot initiative that gives Pima County, Arizona residents who are facing detention or deportation access to a public defender.

This is a NEW petition--the petition drive for 2022 did not have enough signatures. Please drop by Headquarters and sign the new petition, even if you signed last year.

WE HELP Campaign for February

Children’s Clothing Drive

For our February contribution to the community through our WE HELP program, we are requesting donations of new or very gently used children’s clothing, which will go to migrant children. Think sturdy, everyday clothing, both for cooler and warmer temperatures. I know that as a community of mostly retirees we are not likely to have any kids’ clothes hanging in the back of the closet, so look at this as an opportunity to go on a fun shopping spree, even if it’s only to Goodwill or White Elephant where your dollars will be helping another charity as well. Or think of it as your Valentine's present to children in need. Bring them to the wagon in the office. Huge thanks to all who donated socks in January!!

Judy Knape, VP Headquarters

The office is now open three days a week:

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 10 am - 2 pm.

Help Wanted!
