The Border Awareness Experience is an immersion trip organized by Campus Ministry and the Center for Intercultural Engagement focused on raising consciousness about the issues facing the border, including 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 communities that live and work there. The food participants eat and the conditions which they will live in are as much a part of the experience as the people and agencies.
Applications are now being accepted.
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.
