Come learn about the Border Studies Study Away program as well as Mariposas Sin Fronteras, a Tucson, AZ based group that seeks to end the systemic violence and abuse of LGBTQ people held in prison and immigration detention. Mariposas envisions a society that no longer finds solutions in the system of immigration detention or the prison industrial complex. As Mariposas work toward that goal, they support LGBTQ people currently detained in Eloy and Florence, AZ through visits, letters, bond support, advocacy, and housing upon freedom from detention.

The first 30 minutes will consist of a meeting with a representative from the Border Studies program as well as past students who studied away in Tucson. Following that presentation, members of Mariposas Sin Fronteras will discuss their work and responses to the immigration industrial complex.
