We are an organization of women who work in the U.S.-Mexico border community. Border Women members are located in the region of
- El Paso, Texas,
- Las Cruces, New Mexico and
- Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua.
The U.S.-Mexico border is a special place. It is a blending place. It is literally a place where two nations and two cultures merge to form one unique community.
What is “Border Women?”
We are a faith-based organization. Border Women’s members examine the issues that affect both our land and its people who are most at-risk. Our goal is to effect positive change. We want to improve the quality of life in our communities. We support each other. We also collaborate with other organizations in our border area that work for justice and peace.
Welcome to our website! Learn with us. Follow our news. What we experience on the margin of our nations is, in effect, the leading edge of change. That change already influences our hemisphere. Or, if it doesn’t yet, it soon will.
You’re welcome to contact us through this website. We believe in dialog and collaboration.
Welcome to the border, la frontera, where a fence punctuates the land, creating two worlds. Here we are at the intersection of cultures, languages and nations.
Here on the border you will encounter spiritual, emotional, political and justice issues that will change you forever.
