I am presently the chair of the Board of Directors for the Women's Intercultural Center in Anthony, NM. You may visit the website to learn about their values and mission in the Mesilla Valley. One of the great things they do is take groups on the Border Awareness Experience. This includes visits to colonias on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border. I participated on April 24, 2005.

Spring 2007 Border Teacher Network created a course for teachers which included a border immersion experience.
