Education Team Launches “Community Conversations.” Are you ready to #WelcomeLikeJesus? The Kino Border Initiative is so grateful to partner with you to create spaces in communities across the US where we can gather to:
→Share honestly about our own experiences of welcome and exclusion, and the impact that this has on each of us individually and as a community.
→Learn about what motivates people to migrate to the US-Mexico border today.
→Reflect on what it means to #WelcomeLikeJesus, and imagine how we can do this together in our community in a way that moves us beyond our comfort zones.
During this training, we will equip you with the tools to lead others into this space and facilitate a welcoming environment that can foster transformation toward solidarity with migrants.
