No Borders, No Walls
* Due to COVID-19 and to protect the health & safety of our partner communities in Tijuana and trip participants, we are hosting this opportunity virtually.
Are you ready to learn more about U.S. immigration policy from those directly impacted?
In partnership with Via International & UU Refugee & Immigrant Services and Education (UURISE), we are excited to offer a new online immersion for UUs and UU-aligned individuals interested in learning and engaging with the realities of immigration at the California border.
Through online virtual visits, attendees will have an opportunity to witness the effect of US Immigration policies from both sides of the border, deepen our faith connection to issues and efforts around immigration justice, and to connect with communities directly impacted by our broken immigration system.
- engage in shared reflection and spiritual deepening;
- deepen our understanding of our faith’s call to transform existing policies and practices;
- attend a bi-national worship service on the border;
- connect to the realities of our broken immigration system on both sides of the US Border;
- visit with several groups providing support to deportees;
- meet with community organizers in Tijuana;
- share in faith development around immigration;
- learn what we can do as social justice makers and faith activists when we return home; and
- take concrete next steps in creating immigrant and immigration justice.
