Borderlinks
November 12, 2012

Experiencing the borderlands first-hand provides the opportunity for real discovery and was the best way I have found to feel confident to engage in conversations ranging from globalization to immigration to social-justice.
Being able to witness, have a guided group reflection and then decide how I wanted to behave with the new knowledge I had acquired, was a life-changing experience. Standing in front of the border wall from both sides, talking to border patrol agents, sharing a meal with migrants who had just been deported or who were about to venture across, or staying with a family who had built their home out of materials they found at the maquilas, all made a lasting impression on me. As the coordinator and participant in two semester-long programs with Borderlinks, I am forever aware of my connection to that not so faraway land; as a consumer, educator, voter, and inter-culturally competent individual.
