why Mexico

After visiting Ecuador in 2017, Cambodia in 2018, and Thailand in 2019, our 2020 project involves traveling to the California-Mexico border, where students will learn about the rich relationship and history between the cities of Tijuana and San Diego. Students will meet with border security guards and tour both sides of the border wall.  Because Global to Local also focuses on spending time with grassroots change-makers who have identified a need in their own communities and worked towards solutions to address those needs, students will learn from local organizers who support refugees and immigrants who are seeking entry into the United States, as well as families that have been separated because of recent federal policy decisions.
