In partnership with Casas de Luz & UU Refugee & Immigrant Services and Education (UURISE), we are excited to offer a new in-person immersion experience for UUs and UU-aligned individuals interested in engaging with the realities of immigration at the California border.

During our visit we will be working together to make real impact for one family in an emerging community just south of our California border in Tijuana.
