Building Bridges Across Borders

The mission of Building Bridges Across Borders is to advocate, educate and raise awareness, and provide opportunities to engage in direct service with immigrants and refugees. We want to advance a more just, compassionate, and humane life for immigrants and refugees reflecting on Gospel values and Catholic Social Teaching, as expressed in the principles of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. We aim to inform students about their rights and obtain resources to become advocates for ourselves and for our families.
