“Since its inception, SBCC has amplified the voices of southern border communities from San Diego to Brownsville and taken our just fight for dignity and justice to the Nation’s capitol by urging policy makers to implement common-sense accountability and oversight mechanisms to reform the out-of-control border enforcement regime.
SBCC is committed to continue to uplift those who have been affected by border abuse and to strengthen our resolve to revitalize and not militarize southern border communities.
