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.
