Mission Statement

BorderLinks is an international leader in experiential education that raises awareness and inspires action around global political economics.

BorderLinks grew out of the Sanctuary Movement in the 1980s when faith communities, universities, and other organizations rallied to advocate on behalf of thousands of refugees fleeing persecution in Central America.

Today, BorderLinks educational programs focus on issues of immigration, community formation, development, and social justice in the borderlands between Mexico, the U.S and beyond.

As a bi-national organization, BorderLinks brings people together to build bridges of solidarity across North and Latin American borders and promote intercultural understanding and respect.
