The reality of life on the borderlands is much more complex and unjust than most people realize. Our community partner offers experiential learning opportunities that explore the difficulties of migration and life along the U.S./Mexico border. The goals of the trip will be to explore historical and current immigration policies and their impacts, speak with people directly affected by migration, build connections with people and organizations fighting for migrant justice on both sides of the border, think critically and intersectionally about solutions to the root causes of migration, and develop tools to act for positive social change in home communities. During this trip we do not meet with Border Patrol (BP), or any arm of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), this organization tries its best to make this a safe space for everyone regardless of their immigration status. However, this trip will be emotionally demanding, so please take this into consideration upon applying.
