BorderLinks: Theology and Justice

United States (Arizona) and Mexico

March 21-27, 2015, apply by January 18, 2015

In partnership with BorderLinks, UUCSJ has designed a journey for seminarians to explore the entwined issues of economic justice and immigration in the border areas of the United States and Mexico. Participants will visit maquiladoras (factories), study the ways economic policies such as NAFTA have shaped the border region, and be introduced to some economic alternatives that are being created by the communities in response to the current economic model. The journey will be grounded in theological reflection and contemplative practice, helping us deepen our understanding of the intersections between spirituality and justice activism.

Cost: $1200 per person. Trip begins and ends in Tucson, Ariz.; cost does not include round-trip travel to Tucson.
