First/Last Day Participation for 2019

Monday, May 27, 2019:

PLEASE NOTE LOCATION CHANGE FROM PREVIOUS YEARS!

There will be a press conference to kick off the Migrant Trail at 9:30am at Shalom Mennonite Fellowship (6044 E 30th Street- near Golf Links and Craycroft) in Tucson, Arizona. We will be carpooling from Southside Church at 10:15am to Sásabe, Arizona immediately following the press conference. We need help to carpool our participants down to the border, so we would appreciate any spare room you might have in your car!

Once in Sásabe, we will be crossing the border into Sonora (cars will be parked on the Arizona side of the border). We will be having lunch with community members in Sásabe, Sonora, followed by a blessing ceremony to begin the Migrant Trail. We will walk one mile on the México side, have a short ceremony at the border wall, then cross back into the U.S. on foot and continue an additional five miles on the Arizona side of the border. We will then transport drivers back to their vehicles at the border.

YOU MUST BRING YOUR PASSPORT IF YOU INTEND TO CROSS THE BORDER AND JOIN US FOR THIS PART OF THE WALK.

A few reminders:
1) Wear sunscreen
2) Wear a hat!
3) Cover up!
4) Bring water!
5) Wear appropriate footwear (open-toed shoes are not recommended)
