Margo Cowan and her staff at Justice for All outlined the urgent need to get this initiative to provide indigent residents of Pima County legal representation for removal/deportation hearings on the ballot for 2022. They can provide you with everything you need – including pens and hand sanitizer – to help you gather signatures on petitions in a safe and successful manner!
