The Welcoming Migrants Committee (WMC) is organizing a delegation to participate in Common Ground on the Border January 13-15, 2022 at the Good Shepherd United Church of Christ in Sahuarita, Arizona. Common Ground on the Border features classes in art & music; presentations by national and international scholars and activists sharing their perspectives on our current border and immigration crisis; and field trips to the border, into the desert, and other nearby locations. The US/Mexico Borderlands have always been a beautiful mix of culture, language, cuisine, economies and people. It has also been a place of struggle, high and low temperatures, a fragile environment, and the push and pull of immigration. The Borderlands is the perfect place to explore the arts, touch the culture and have deeper conversations about the complicated issues that collide at the border.
