No Border Wall Walk

From Roma to Brownsville, TX,

From March 8th to March 16th,

Border Ambassadors walked 120 miles to protest the Secure Fence Act of 2006 and to advocate for immigration reform. This nonviolent demonstration passed through the communities of the Rio Grande Valley which will be affected by a border wall. Food/lodging was provided by local churches, and compassionate citizens along the way.

Over 300 people walked a portion of this walk, and many more participated in the final rally at UTB. For more information and press releases concerning the No Border Wall Walk, please visit: https://smartborders.wordpress.com/no-border-wall-walk-publicity/
