We Are One: Crossing Borders as UUs
In preparation for "Justice General Assembly" in Phoenix, Ariz., (June 20–24, 2012) the Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA's) Faith Without Borders program (FWB), and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) have jointly organized three opportunities for service/learning trips to the U.S./Mexico border with our partner organization: BorderLinks. All Unitarian Universalists (over 16 years of age) are invited!
To register contact Eric Cherry, email@example.com, in the UUA's International Office.
- January 24–27, 2012 - Registration deadline is December 10
- April 20-23, 2012 - Registration deadline is March 10
- May 25-28, 2012 - Registration deadline is April 10
Each service-learning trip will begin at the BorderLinks Headquarters in Tucson, Ariz., and includes experiences in Nogales, Mexico.
$550-all-inclusive (except for transportation to/from Tucson). Please see "Participation fee" below for information about scholarships.
Through education, meetings with partners, service opportunities, and theological reflection, we'll grow in understanding the human rights issues at stake on the U.S./Mexico border and return to our homes informed and inspired to be leaders for Immigration Justice.
BorderLinks has deep experience designing programs and guiding groups, including Unitarian Universalists. They'll make arrangements for all of the logistics: accommodations, meals, transportation, translators. The UUA will set our faith-context for the journey and provide Unitarian Universalist theological reflection.
And, together, we'll carry a message to "Justice GA" in Phoenix about service learning.
$550-all-inclusive (except for transportation to/from Tucson). Some Scholarship assistance may be available for youth (over 16), Young-Adults, and Seminarians. Registration deadline is December 10. To register contact Eric Cherry, firstname.lastname@example.org, in the UUA's International Office.
