trip to casa de migrantes in mexicali, bc
Sunday 2nd October 2011 9:00AM (Sunday 2nd October 2011 9:00AM)
*Meet outside the Viejas Arena at San Diego State University*
Join Social Justice Circle as we take community donations to Casa de Migrantes of Mexicali. We will be meeting in front of Viejas Arena of SDSU, then will be carpooling to Mexicali, BC Mexico. We will start with a brief discussion of the social and political issues of migrant deportations, so be prepared to come with any comments or questions. Also, we request that each volunteer bring any donation for gas money, and if there are more of us than can fit in one vehicle, we may ask one volunteer to drive and provide for carpooling.
In addition, please wear comfortable clothing and expect temperatures to reach over 100 degrees. Also it is recomended that each volunteer bring enough water and food/snacks for themselves (although we will be stopping for food throughout the trip).
*** Lastly, dont forget to bring identification and a passport since we will be crossing the international border, as well as other internal checkpoints.***
(Hotel Migrante is located just a few minutes away from the international border.)
Contact Indiana (760) 975-2057 or April (619) 665-8816, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. We hope to see you there.
