Rev. Chris Gilmore and Rev. Dr. Kari Collins of Sixth Avenue UCC, Rev. Dr. David Bahr of Park Hill UCC, and Rev. Curt Preston of Lakewood UCC are collaborating to offer a BorderLinks experiential learning opportunity for up to 20 people* from around the RMC. During this time, we will have the opportunity to:
- Participate in educational programs designed to challenge and confront the policies and circumstances that lead to migration;
- Walk desert trails to understand the strenuous journey that migrants experience while attempting to cross the U.S./Mexico border; and
- Meet with community organizers and local advocates who are working to create economic and social opportunities in the borderlands.
This opportunity will take place in Tucson, AZ from Sept 23 – 27, 2019 at a cost of $680 per person for all programming, lodging, and food (price does not include the cost of transportation**). To register, click Delegation Registration and put the name of the delegation as Sixth Avenue UCC. To complete your registration, please mail your check for $680 (payable to Sixth Avenue UCC) to Sixth Avenue UCC, 3250 E 6th Ave, Denver, CO 80206.
