Ven-a-Ver Borderlands

Ven a Ver Borderlands is an immersion into the reality of the US/Mexico border and immigration. We will travel to Tucson, Arizona and participate in a delegation with Borderlinks, an organization devoted to educating communities on immigration. Possible activities on this immersion include: meeting with humanitarian organizations providing aid to migrants, hiking in the desert to the border, and participating in workshops that provide a window to the everyday life of a migrant. The goal of this immersion is for students to have a personal encounter with the border, while looking through the lens of faith, in order to have an informed opinion about immigration. There will also be an opportunity for us to connect with the CSJ sisters currently in Tucson.
