WHO WE ARE:
Border Action Network is a human rights organization in border and immigrant communities. Our mission is to promote safety, equality, dignity, understanding and justice within the human environment, across cultures, regardless of race, sexual orientation, religious beliefs or country of origin.
WHAT WE DO: Border Action Network “Educates and Advocates”
BAN has been working since 1999 to assist immigrants in our state. We form human rights committees to educate the community about our ever-changing laws and rights. We teach ESL, GED, and computer skills and have plans to grow more educational programs. BAN trains Human Rights Promoters to carry the work into their own communities. Each election year, we participate in statewide civic engagement campaigns, registering eligible voters and hosting town halls.
As advocates, we monitor our local, state, and national governments, speaking publicly about legislation we feel is unjust. We meet with Border Patrol, ICE, DOJ, and other officials to share “the other side of the story.”
BAN also participates with many other human rights organizations throughout the southwest, sharing information and resources that can best combat the unjust negative climate that has grown throughout our region.
We hope you will join with us! There is always a need for volunteers to help in numerous areas; teaching ESL, helping with events, helping in the office, or assisting with our civic engagement campaigns . . . if you have time to help, this is the place for you! Email us at
