Dear Friends and Supporters of the Migrant Trail:
It is with heavy hearts that we reach out to you today to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Migrant Trail this year. In light of the recommendations regarding social distancing and travel in response to Covid-19, we feel it is in the best interest of our community that we do our part to #FlattenTheCurve and keep as many people at home as possible.
This year would have been our 17th year of bearing witness to the deaths on the border by walking together in the Arizona desert. We are currently planning an alternative experience during the week that we can invite all to attend virtually. It will include reflections, videos, testimonies, and photos. We will be posting information on our website, Facebook page, and via email to all participants.
We would like you to know what an incredibly difficult and heartbreaking decision this has been for us. We remain committed to walking in solidarity with our migrant sisters and brothers. We are experiencing a very challenging time right now, but if there is one thing that our 16 years of the Migrant Trail has taught us is that the journey is about making it together, helping each other along the way to ensure we all arrive as safely as possible.
From the Familia Migrant Trail to yours, we wish you the very best, and encourage you to stay safe as we walk these difficult times together as a global community, if not in person, very much in spirit.
