At a time of deepening crisis for immigrants and asylum seekers, our congregations across the country are seeking new and more powerful ways to respond. This Border Witness Journey will deepen your understanding of the lethal threats facing migrants at our borders, and will support your justice ministry with theological reflection among colleagues. You will return inspired and equipped to lead your community in effective accompaniment and solidarity as we put our UU values into action. Generous scholarship aid is available.
