Bridges Across Borders was founded in Bradford county in 2003. Now we see our area’s waters threatened by a proposed phosphate mine straddling the New River, and our neighboring Union county, which feeds into the Santa Fe River. There are thousands of acres of wetlands on the project site, endangered and threatened species that live there, and our fragile aquifer that is subject to depletion and contamination. We humans are concerned about our wells, our quality of life, and our health. Help us raise the funds for printing, postage, and expert testimony. Help us say, “NO PHOSPHATE MINING IN BRADFORD AND UNION COUNTIES.”
Friends and relatives … Please join us for a lunch of tamales and beans this coming Saturday, May 4th at the Southside Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall at 317 W. 23rd St. Tucson, AZ for a Border Lunch and Art Sale.
