Our Story

No More Victims is a humanitarian collective of likeminded community organizers, civic leaders, artists, activists, and storytellers united in a shared mission to support families and children in need. We are a non-partisan, non-violent, non-profit, pro-peace organization that acts as a force multiplier for frontline communities working to aid innocent victims of war and others who are harmed by policies that disenfranchise them from the right to thrive.

No More Victims began in late 2002 as the invasion of Iraq approached. In the years that followed, we connected communities across the United States with war-injured Iraqi children who were victims of the war and in desperate need of medical treatment. Through our collective work, we arranged for pro-bono medical care, housing, legal, and other forms of support, and we helped these families tell their stories to a wider audience. Today, we continue to work on behalf of children and their families who are disproportionately impacted by war, racism, gender inequality and discrimination, and climate change.

It is our mission to help create a world where there is more love instead of hate and more peace instead of war—a world where there are no more victims.

Reuniting Ixcell Perez With Her Mother Dalia

In 2019, Dalia Perez had been separated from her daughter Ixcell for four months when we learned of their plight. While Ixcell was being treated for leukemia in Durham, North Carolina, Dalia was stranded at the border in Tijuana because the U.S. Customs and Border Protection under the Trump administration refused to let Dalia cross.

We assembled a coalition of concerned civic, humanitarian, and church groups to help and launched a broad media and outreach campaign to raise awareness about the Perez family.
