MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) Great Lakes is sponsoring a Borderlands Learning Tour, May 22-26, 2019, in Tucson/Douglas Arizona and Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico. Participants also have the option to stay and walk the Migrant Trail from May 27 to June 2.
This learning tour is designed to bring awareness about the increasing migrant deaths, militarization, environment degradation, effects on habitat, and effects on sister communities by the border wall along the Mexico/U.S. Borderlands. Participants will increase their understanding and knowledge of the social, economic, political and theological significance of migration in border communities, including advocacy tools and capacity building to engage others on borderlands and migration issues.
The cost of the Learning Tour is $550 for the five days, which includes all meals, modest lodging and transportation on sites. We will cross the border to Mexico, so you will need to bring your passport.
