"If you are coming to help me, you are wasting your time.  But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together." - Aboriginal Activists Group, Queensland, 1970.

We cross the US/Mexico border, just half an hour south of campus, and spend the day learning from communities that have welcomed USD students into their homes, and their lives, for the past 20 years.  Without picking up a paintbrush or a shovel, the day is an opportunity to reimagine what justice looks like to refine our questions of privilege, and to work towards building mutual relationships.  Sign up to meet college students who live in Tijuana, to visit residents at a home for those living with HIV, to share a meal with  migrant men, and to understand how the border affects our community.
