Border

JUSTICE

Each Spring Break, Campus Ministry and the Office for Intercultural Engagement sponsors a Border Awareness Experience to raise consciousness about the issues facing the border such as immigration, economic development, human rights, and social justice. More than being an informational tour, it seeks to immerse the participants in the border culture and the realities of the many people and groups that live and work there. The food that we will eat and the conditions which we will live in are as much a part of the experience as the people and agencies.

The experience will be at The Annunciation House, a house of hospitality for migrants, in El Paso, Texas. Participants are expected to participate in three preparatory meetings and all the experiences of the trip. We will be living simply and in close quarters. For more information or if you want to apply online, following our links below.
