Border Immersion

Welcome to the Borderlands

The Rocky Mountain Synod Border Conference has ministries that host groups (educators, students, churches, and community members) interested in an accompaniment-style immersion, where relationships and first-hand educational experiences about border issues are prioritized.

Border immersions are designed to give exposure to multiple perspectives about the borderlands by:

  • Speaking with first-generation immigrants.
  • Visiting local organizations working with immigrant populations.
  • Meeting with government officials to hear about border protection and law enforcement.
  • Learning about immigration law.
  • Building an understanding of economic policies and realities affecting people on the border.
