We are pleased to announce the 2020 Border Witness Program in McAllen, Texas, the US side of the border with Reynosa, Mexico. The Border Witness Program provides a powerful, first-hand look at the human experience behind the issues as well as a critical, analytical look at the systemic issues contributing to the complexity of migration and immigration at the US-Mexico border.
December is designated at the time to honor the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, an international document stating the basic rights and fundamental freedoms to which all human beings are entitled. During this month, we stand together for equality, justice, and the dignity of all human persons.
Universal Human Rights Month
“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home — so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. [...] Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
