The SCU delegation will spend the week in the Tucson area. Hosted by BorderLinks, an international organization that builds bridges of solidarity across North and Latin American borders, the SCU students will learn about immigration policy and reform and its impact on the lives of people living along the US-Mexican border. The experience will focus on: agricultural policies, labor issues, environmental impacts, international trade policies and practices, poverty and food access. The group will come to understand the history and culture of this region through conversations and meetings with migrants, community leaders, activists, and NGOs which may include: Green Valley Samaritans, Florence Project, Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Café Justo, Sierra Club, and Kino Border Initiative.
