Review for Borderlinks, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The experiential education offered by Borderlinks is a rare and powerful opportunity. It can be difficult to grapple with the convergence of border-related issues such as immigration, sustainability, economics, and equality. Borderlinks fulfills the unique role of guiding, nurturing, and cultivating individuals as they connect with the communities on the borderlands.

Academically dissecting the interconnectedness of race, class, and power dynamics can feel remote and lifeless. Experiencing the connections firsthand is a fundamentally different approach. Interacting with both women and men who are involved in struggles for sustainable development and social change has an immediate and visceral effect. The living, active community.in the borderlands and its myriad struggles are no longer an abstract story in a textbook.

Borderlinks encourages thoughtful, critical contemplation. Time is taken daily to discuss the experiences. It enriches the individual via deeper consideration of the fundamental and underlying issues.
