UUBorders, a partnership between UUJMCA & the GaryMar Academy has led experiential learning trips to the US-Mexico border area several times a year. Due to the need to prioritize the safety and health of the communities we visit (and any trip participants), our in-person immersions are on hold.
But we're back with an online format in 2021!
In partnership with Via International & UURISE (UU Refugee & Immigrant Services and Education), we are excited to offer a new online immersion for UUs and UU-aligned individuals interested in learning and engaging more with the realities of immigration at the California border. Through online virtual visits, attendees will have an opportunity to witness the effect of US Immigration policies from both sides of the border, deepen our faith connection to issues and efforts around immigration justice, and to connect with communities directly impacted by our broken immigration system.
A tentative itinerary for our Summer 2021 UUBorders Online Immersion is below. Four one-and-a-half-hour virtual visits will be spaced out the weekend of July 31 & August 1, with an opening orientation the evening of Friday, July 30th and a closing/next steps session the evening of Monday, August 2.
Registration for this Summer 2021 UUBorders is $150.00 per attendee, and covers both program costs and "love offerings"/donations to the communities and organizers with whom attendees will visit. Scholarships/Discounts are available for UU youth, seminarians, and financial accessibility. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about these options
