History of Keep Tucson Together

Keep Tucson Together was founded back in 2011 by 3 amazing woman activist in Tucson, with the sole propose of getting immigration cases closed for those in Tucson who couldn't afford an attorney.  Under Formal President Obama announce an executive order that would allowed cases to be closed as long they show community ties, no prior records in immigration or criminal court, and have been living in the United States for a few years. During this time we were able to closed many cases and keep Tucson families together.  

In 2012, President Obama announce the DACA - (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and we open up our legal clinic in Pueblo High School were we have help over 3,000 DACA receipts over the years to apply and renew their DACA status and giving them a safe 2 year work permit to be able to be in the country with status and be able to work. 

In 2015,  we extended our work with training volunteers to help with Naturalization.  During the last executive order of President Obama, he made it possible for certain people who qualify to apply for their Citizenship and ask for a fee waiver.  Since the start of our program we have help over 2,500 community members apply and become US Citizen.  

In 2017, we started La Campaña del Pueblo (People Power Campaign), in order to protect our community from the harsh immigration policies that were taking affect from the administration at the time.  We gave everyone who wanted one, a G-28 sign by an attorney, a power of attorney, and big poster that read "All Law Enforcement Officials DO NOT ENTER without a Lawful Search Warrant" to be put up at home, business, church, etc.  with that we made sure that families were protected from ICE and  BP.  Thanks to many other communities members and organizations, we were able to create tools and information to provide our community and making sure they know their rights, understand the legal process, and be able to defend themselves in front of the immigration officer.
