Mission Statement: “Nourished and empowered by the Spirit, the Casa Mariposa community seeks to live in right relationship with one another, the community, and the earth through hospitality, simple and sustainable living, playful spirituality, and peaceful, prophetic action.”
The Restoration Project is work carried out by the community of Casa Mariposa in support and solidarity with women and men being held in immigration detention centers in Florence and Eloy, Arizona.
A little bit about the vision behind Casa Mariposa: We believe that another way is possible. For us, living in community, sharing resources, living simply, standing in solidarity with those being oppressed, living in harmony with the earth, being dedicated to peaceful, non-violent resistance, are ways that help us live outside the domination system. We think this is what Jesus was talking about when he talked about the Kingdom, or Reign of God. In living like this we have less fear, more hope and the opportunity to live with a sense of abundance and joy.
Where we are: Our address is 127 N. Palomas Avenue, Tucson, AZ 85745. We are located in the Menlo Park neighborhood just west of Downton Tucson.
