Advanced Water Drop Coordinator
A second-generation United States citizen, James Cordero has dedicated his life to providing humanitarian aid and studying along the United States/Mexico border since his first Water Drop with Border Angels in June, 2016. As Water Drop Co-Director, James has led groups to areas along the southern border to leave water, food, and other critical supplies in locations unseen by nearly most people in the world. A vocal activist, James uses his stature and appearance to speak out against injustices, correct myths and fallacies presented by the United States government and mainstream media. For years, James has documented the rise of militarization along the southern border throughout the United States, the desert terrain migrants cross through, and the international migration crisis along the southern border. Publishing photographs, real stories and providing humanitarian aid along the U.S./Mexico border has led to being listed on United States and Mexico federal watch lists.
