The Immigrant, Refugee and Undocumented Discovery (IRU) Team in conjunction with the Mission Committee is sponsoring a delegation to Borderlinks on October 5 – 11, 2022. This trip was originally scheduled in February; however we rescheduled it because of COVID. The number of spaces available is between 8 -14, and currently we have 8 individuals signed up to go. Therefore we have a few spaces available and we would like to offer them to our Bower Hill Community before we offer them to any one else who may be interested in going.
Through dynamic educational experiences, Borderlinks connects divided communities, raises awareness about the border and immigration policies, and inspires action for social transformation. We will learn why people migrate, what happens during the migration journey, and how governmental policies impact people. We will speak to people directly affected by migration including migrants, and others who live in borderlands, and with advocates for migrant justice.
The cost of the trip is approximately $1000.00 plus airfare. If you are interested in going or have questions about the trip, you can contact any member of the IRU Team including Theresa Child, Betsy Hohlfelder, Linda James, Darenda Lease, or Sarah Neusius.
