Migrant Caravan News


On Dec. 10, more than 400 clergy and people of faith took part in a powerful nonviolent direct action at the border in San Diego. The action was covered in more than 1700 stories in TV, print, radio, and web in the U.S., Mexico, and as far away as Israel. 

The action was part of our nationwide week of action, "Love Knows No Borders: A moral call for migrant justice."
