The unfunded, low-budget grassroots effort, organized by ordinary citizens who call themselves “Peace and Justice without Borders” (Paz y Justicia sin Fronteras), was publicized simply by word of mouth and social media. But hundreds gathered nevertheless on both sides of the border.

The U.S. / Mexico Borderland has its own absolutely incomparable culture. It has a unique burgeoning language, its own rhythm and style and a shared outcry for justice, peace and hope.
Our friend Billie continues to be a strong voice for our family in the Borderland. This past Saturday, January 29th, two nations met at a multi-billion dollar border fence which segregates theses sister cities, joining forces to cry out for peace and justice. The images are compelling: brothers and sisters uniting together despite the ironic fence dissevering them.
Please stop by Billie’s blog to read her story and see more images of the rally.
