Participants in an AFSC immigration simulation.

The AFSC immigration simulation is a  hands-on activity for participants to explore the roots of migration and the challenges faced by immigrants. This interactive simulation highlights the reasons rural Mexicans migrate to the US and some of the challenges they face. During the participatory activity, participants will learn about demands on life in rural Mexico, in border towns and in a US worksite, and everyone plays a role. The simulation is engaging, thought-provoking, and also fun. It has been enacted in Charlotte, Greensboro, Chapel Hill, Durham and in select cities across the country.

This fun and educational exercise takes at least 2 hours and requires at least 30 people and a large open space.  All necessary components can be downloaded below, or borrowed from our office.
