FSPA collaborates for Encuentro@theBorder
The FSPA is called to more than just meeting our brothers and sisters at the borders where those fleeing their homes are seeking asylum in the United States. They have committed to the mission of Encuentro@theBorder — to learning about the plight of these people and collaborating with others to support the migrants as they continue on their journey to peace and justice.

Encuentro@theBorder has led FSPA to partner with four organizations also driven to support and empower migrants: Coulee Region Immigration Task Force, La 71 Migrant Shelter, KINO Border Initiative Arizona and Catholic Charities, Brownsville, Texas.
