©2019 by Allies for Immigration Justice

What We Do:
Education and Outreach

Educational Events for the General Public

We provide education to the public about the complexities surrounding immigration issues and explore the historical context, in order to deepen people's understanding of the root causes of migration.

Upcoming events will be posted on our website, and also in our newsletter.

 

Presentations for Community and Faith Organizations

“Border Trip”: (30 min.) Explains a recent trip several Allies made with a larger group to learn about the Haitian Bridge Alliance in Tijuana, the deported Veterans, and the border wall.

“What’s Happening at the Border?” (45 min.) Discusses root causes of migration, explains what an asylum seeker is, as well as current U.S. policy and practice, and the non-profit organizations who are stepping up to support and assist immigrants. 

A handout with actions that people can take is always presented.

If you are interested in a presentation, please contact us. 

Border Trips

The Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of California facilitates 4-day justice trips to Tijuana twice per year. Connect with individuals directly impacted by our broken immigration system. Gain a deeper understanding of the issues compounding the immigration crisis. Discover your personal story and how you can connect to immigration issues. Learn how you can take it home and make a difference.

You do not have to be a member of a Unitarian Universalist Congregation in order to participate in one of these trips.
