Join Rev. Anastassia on a six-day immersion into the realities of the border, including both the deep injustices and the inspiring community responses to this ongoing crisis.
Amid rising xenophobia and threats against basic human rights, the UU College of Social Justice’s “Sanctuary and Solidarity” journey offers a timely chance to deepen your capacity to practice effective solidarity. The trip will include a visit to the border wall, meetings with grassroots partners, listening to migrants tell their stories, and walking the dangerous desert paths that so many risk while crossing the border as a way to experience the depth of the immigration crisis firsthand. Return home inspired and prepared to join emerging campaigns to renew, expand, and strengthen “sanctuary” in the time to come.
This trip is open to participants ages 14 and up who are interested in exploring the connection between spirituality and social justice. An info session will be held October 13, at noon. More info can be viewed here.
