Ajo Samaritans: To eliminate death and suffering in our desert
BorderLinks: Through dynamic educational experiences, BorderLinks connects divided communities, raises awareness about the impact of the border and immigration policies, and inspires action for social transformation. Our program is designed to gain a deep understanding of the multiple and complex reasons why people migrate. Recognizing that many of these root causes can be explained by our own policies and the toll they have taken over our people. Meeting with community organizers, grassroots organizations, and those that are working to create economic and social opportunities for all is a truly empowering experience. It is the affirmation that change is possible and starts with those directly impacted.
The Holy Way Presbyterian Church is located along Ajo Highway west of Tucson. We are happy to offer space for walkers to rest on their final day of the Migrant Trail!
Mennonite Central Committee U.S. (MCC U.S.): A worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches, shares God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice.
Shalom Mennonite Fellowship: We are a community of faith that embodies a wide, inclusive welcome to all. We use 3 languages in worship that reflect who we are – English, Swahili, and Spanish. We lament the border wall, the persecution of asylum seekers, and deaths in the desert. We find hope in faith and in working for justice locally, with many others, and we support the Migrant Trail Walk!
