People who traveled on the New Mexico Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice tour to
Paso/Juarez in April will tell about experiences meeting with the Border Patrol, immigrants and deportees at the Wall and their interviews with people who servethem, including a doctor, a lawyer, small library staff, volunteers at Annunciation House and others.

We want to take more people on tours to witness the border, become involved and inform others about the horrendous conditions on our Southern Border. Come and help work at the local, state and national levels to change this intolerable situation- the most important civil rights issue in American today. If you wish, bring clothes or money to send to children attempting to cross the border into the U.S. We need to work together to help protect the children arriving in the U.S. and to respond to their basic needs. Border immersion experiences help us to understand the root causes that compel children to flee their homes and come to the U.S. Please join us Thursday, Aug. 21, 6-8pm at the Peace and Justice Center to learn more and lend a hand to help us in reaching out to these children. Refreshments will be served, contact Joanne Calkins 268-1733 or Mary Beth Howe (816) 516-1246 for info.
