Border Awareness Experience in El Paso
Thursday, March 14 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Marjorie Margolis will lead a conversation at Mariposa about her recent volunteer experience with Annunciation House in El Paso, Texas, on the U.S./Mexico border. Marjorie, a retired teacher, spent time at Annunciation House with migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.
Annunciation House has provided support to migrant, homeless, and economically vulnerable peoples of the border since its founding in 1978. Annunciation House developed the Border Awareness Experience (BAE) in the early 1990s to facilitate face-to-face encounters between participants and people and groups on both sides of the border.
This talk is for those who wish to hear about Marjorie’s first-hand experiences at the border and also who might be interested in joining a group trip to volunteer with Annunciation House. Marjorie is assessing local interest for a group Border Awareness Experience trip.
