Join us in an immersion to learn about the challenges facing the Tijuana/San Diego border region. You will engage in solidarity with the realities faced by immigrant communities and combat the stereotypes immigration has been given right here in one of the most important areas involving this issue. 

You will learn about grassroots issues and organizations advancing social justice on the border, fostering community engagement, nourishing their personal development, and promoting global dialogue. Arrupe Immersions promote the understanding of immersion as a practice, an evolving lived experience that results in unique learning and growth for everyone involved, centered in solidarity.
