Border Witness for Religious Leaders
Proclaim the Radical Inclusion of Your Faith
UUCSJ partners with BorderLinks to offer journeys to the U.S.-Mexico border.
Amid rising xenophobia and threats against basic human rights, the voices of religious leaders are critically needed to call our nation back to its ideals.
Are you wondering what your options might be for effective congregational action in this heightened time of hostility and violence and possible deportations?
Are you wondering how your congregation can be involved in reducing the impact of these harmful policies to create safer, more just and welcoming communities?
Join UUCSJ for “Solidarity through Sanctuary”, a transformative journey to the U.S. / Mexico border designed for religious leaders.
Directly bear witness to some of the realities that migrants and refugees face, and learn from and support the inspiring grassroots organizing being done in response. This Border Witness journey will help you become a more powerful and effective religious leader for immigration justice in these perilous times.
Cost: $900, need-based financial aid is available. All costs included except flight to Tucson.
Note: If possible, UUCSJ will attempt to provide travel grants for seminary students from denominational and seminary institutions.
