See • Think • Act

BorderLinks offers experiential learning opportunities that explore the causes and difficulties of migration, as well as the impact of U.S. immigration policies. BorderLinks brings to the forefront the voices of migrants and people who are committed to social change. 

The BorderLinks experience is an educational program for groups that we refer to as delegations. Our delegates come from as close as Tucson itself, and as far as Beijing and Manila. Delegations are typically pre-existing groups from universities, churches, and civic associations. You'll get to meet with community organizers and local advocates, and engage in thoughtful reflection to put learning into action. We also create delegations for individuals and small groups at specific times throughout the year.

BorderLinks staff lead workshops on specific topics for local groups, or at conferences and institutions. Workshops are interactive learning opportunities that cover a wide range of topics from border history to action planning for social change.

Anyone interested in what it looks like to carry out a longstanding faith tradition of welcoming the stranger/foreigner and standing in solidarity with those on the underside of power and justice will seriously benefit from this experience.

My 14 year-old daughter and I had a chance to join a #Borderlinks delegation to help us better understand one of the most important issues of our times - immigration. The staff was well-informed and incredibly patient, dealing with our large group. Seeking truths - Borderlinks can help. Thanks!

Before coming to BorderLinks, I felt helpless. Now I feel as if I have the tools to take action!
