Border immersion trips are educational experiences. They are designed to prepare participants to return home and take action by raising awareness about immigration and its root causes, as well as engaging in advocacy for justice based immigration reforms.
The Mercy Justice Team is hosting two border immersion experiences in 2023:
June 4–9, 2023, El Paso, Texas, United States/Juárez, CI, Mexico, hosted by the Columban Mission Center. Special focus will be on U.S. policies contributing to the root causes driving migration.
October 1–6, 2023, Rio Grande Valley, South Texas (McAllen), hosted by ARISE and its Mercy associates. Special focus will be on the community-organizing work being done by ARISE.
