About Us

The Colibrí Center for Human Rights is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization based in Tucson, Arizona with the mission to end disappearance and uphold human dignity along the U.S.-Mexico border. Colibrí works in solidarity with families of the disappeared to find truth and justice through forensic science, investigation, and community organizing. Colibrí bears witness to this unjust loss of life, accompanying families in their search and holding space for families to build community, share stories, and raise consciousness about this human rights crisis. 


Through our Missing Migrant Project and DNA Program, we work with medical examiners to compare information families provide about the missing as well as DNA samples with unidentified remains recovered along the border in the hopes of giving families the answers they so deserve. Beyond our forensic justice work, we create supportive spaces and advocate for change through the Family Network, a network of mutual support and solidarity among families and friends of missing migrants across the Americas, and Bring them Back and Historias y Recuerdos, oral history-testimony projects that center and amplify family voices.
