The Mexican-Arizona Border: Immigration, Economic Justice and Human Rights, Winter 2011

Brita L Gill-Austern

This Border Crossing Immersion trip will take place on the border between Mexico and the U.S. with the majority of our time being spent in Nogales, Mexico, a border town near Tucson, Arizona. This class will study the complex issues of immigration, the related issues of global economics that drive immigration and the implications of the militarization of the border on those who cross. We shall study multiple perspectives on immigration with the goal of empowering persons to address and respond to a critical and divisive issue in our society and in churches. We will join with the bi-national, non-profit organization of Borderlinks for our time at the border. Limit: 12.
For more information and applications, see the Border-Crossing Immersion Handbook.
