Border Experience

Focus:

Migration and US/Mexico Border Issues

You can engage in a border experience to increase your understanding of the complexity of the issues facing people on both sides of the US/Mexico Border. Through the experience, participants live in solidarity with the recent immigrants while working with local organizations that provide housing and assistance. The goal is to provide a hands-on experience and relationship-building across both cultural and physical borders. Immigration Court hearings, a border tour, and a dialogue  with Customs and Border Protection enable participants to reflect on global issues such as economics, poverty, and scarce food and water resources as they relate to our neighbors.
