MCC invites young adults age 18-30 to South Texas to raise awareness about the increasing migrant deaths, militarization, environment degradation, effects on habitat and effects on sister communities near the border wall along the Mexico/U.S. border. Participants will increase their understanding and knowledge of the social, economic, political and biblical/theological significance of migration in border communities, including advocacy tools and capacity building to engage others on borderlands and migration issues. Some grants may be available to interested participants with financial need.
The issue of immigration is multi-faceted and there are many ways that MCC is supporting local organizations to help people caught up in the immigration maze.
Join us to learn about what's happening at the border now, and how MCC is partnering with the work of peace and justice in the Rio Grande Valley.
For registration or to inquire about a grant, please contact Abby Endashaw!
