PROYECTO RESCATAME! PROJECT RESCUE ME!
Friends are helping me raise funds to purchase and distribute Personal Location Beacons in Altar, Sonora, Mexico. Migrants equipped with the McMurdo Fast Find 210 Personal Location Beacon have a better chance of surviving the trek across the Arizona desert. The device can be activated only one time. When activated, it sends a signal to the US government near Washington, D.C. The office there calls search and rescue folks along the border and advises them of the location coded into the satellite signal. Send me an email if you wish to help out. Robin@RobinHoover.Com.
Sue Goodman, my wife, has completed a video we wish all of you to share: Humane Borders: First 10 years 2000-2010. Contact me or Humane Borders, and you may obtain your own copy. The video is commemorative in that it reviews the highlights of the first 10 years, but it is also intended to lay out a model for other groups to consider as a means of implementing a vision of social change. You may also view the video online at WWW.vimeo.com/11481412. Please let us know what you think.
My book manuscript is now about 106,000 words. Six persons are reading, proofing, editing. We'll see where it goes. It remains to be seen if this will be commercial, university, or self-published. Scads of folks have indicted an interest in reading it.
