a proposed plan

Here is the plan to foster a sense of justice particularly around border issues:

Take a group to Mexico for one day in April. We will go to Miracle Ranch. We will intentionally make efforts to learn and receive as much as we give and teach.

Plan a follow up trip to Mexico for a weekend in the summer. This will be for folks who would like to further their experience and delve deeper into the issues of justice around the border.

Create an enduring form of outreach ministry that opens our hearts and minds to our brothers and sisters from across the border.

Possible ministries:
Breakfast for day laborers
Childrens event or program for cultural exchange

Hoped for outcomes:
Solidarity with immigrants
Advocacy for just immigration reform
Stem the tide of hate crimes directed to immigrants
More just and humane laws for immigrants
