We are a group of four, queer, trans, non-binary, bipoc organizers, medically trained individuals, herbalists, and artists requesting support from friends, comrades, and allies, to attend the 24th annual Doctors for Global Health Assembly taking place on Tohono O’odham and Pascua Yaqui territory, also known as Tucson, Arizona. We are excited about this year’s Assembly focus on Healing Justice: Undoing Borders That Divide Us.

We find it valuable to equip ourselves with the proper networks, skills, and knowledge to continue supporting the self-determination of our migrant & asylum seeking communities that also take into account an array of intersecting identities that have been erased within these narratives. 

Though we all received the Sandy Kemp Memorial Scholarship to attend the assembly, this only covers cost of entry.
By donating to us, you will be helping fund travel expenses, accommodations, and a portion of the event cost. This will allow us to integrate into the event and facilitate avenues to make these topics and education more accessible. You will be helping build grassroots systems made to defend, care for, and advocate for people of all backgrounds beyond just migration status. As people committed to the well being of our communities, your support means a lot in terms of allowing us to access these spaces and pools of knowledge that we find important to progressing the liberation of our peoples.

We believe that public health goes beyond just our medicine, but involves the most broad sense of well being through organizing, activist work, and mutual aid. We believe that this assembly is an important resource to build solidarity networks and infrastructure for our wider communities to move beyond solely relying on medical or academic institutions to acquire knowledge and support. As people already invested in this work, we believe there is a need to decentralize health practices, and share them within our own local, national, and global networks with the goal  to empower any group of people to promote a healthier community beyond just our institutional systems.

Through this assembly we hope to learn more ways to understand health in a global context, become better advocates specifically to those criminalized by the same systems made to help, examining privilege, and foster more support networks within our own organizing. 



About Frontline Medics
Frontline medics is a collective committed to providing our communities of resistance with aid and support.

The underlying motivation of our work is to decentralize medical knowledge, focusing on communities that do not have access to and who historically have been subject to discrimination and dehumanization by the medical industrial complex.

We formed several years ago after our firsthand experiences in dealing with police brutality and disaster situations, and after seeing the vacuum that exists of womxn and femmes of color with an anti-colonial political analysis who are trained to respond to medical emergencies. 

You can see documentation of our work on our Instagram account, from volunteering as street medics during community rallies/protests, to organizing mutual aid responses during the wildfires that have been ravaging the coast, and most recently training asylum seekers at the border to deal with tear gas decontamination.
