UUBorders is an experiential justice journey to the U.S.-Mexico Border sponsored by the
Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of California in collaboration with Garymar Academy.
Are you ready to learn more about U.S. immigration policy from those directly impacted?
Are you open to growing spiritually?
Here is a sample itinerary from the last trip to give you an idea of what a UU Borders trip is like:
The trip included:
- a visit to Mother Asunta shelter, the deportee drop center in Tijuana;
- serving breakfast to 1,100 people each day at Desayunador Saliseano
- meeting with inspirational neighborhood organizers working to build up their communities; and
- attending the Sunday communion ceremony at the border wall.
Each evening we come together to discuss
- how we can speak and act from our Unitarian Universalist faith in our communities and at the national level for compassionate and comprehensive immigration reform in the United States.
- the economic issues that push and pull immigrants and their families;
- Congressional issues
The cost is $470 per person and includes room & board, programming, and transportation from San Diego to Tijuana and back.

The Living Tradition we share draws from many sources: the words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion and transforming love. — Singing the Living Tradition
