LSJI Feature for SFNO FINALThe Lasallian Social Justice Institute (LSJI) will tackle the important issue of immigration with its 2017 summer program. LSJI, a program of the Office for Lasallian Education at Christian Brothers Conference, is partnering with the District of San Francisco New Orleans (SFNO) for this year’s program, El Otro Lado: Guides in the Encounter.  It will take place July 10-14, 2017, in El Paso, Texas, and Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico.

El Otro Lado is an immersion/professional development program for educators and is based on a popular program for students offered in SFNO. This LSJI experience is for educators who are interested in becoming guides in the encounter between their students and the migrant community. The program will combine immigration immersion experiences with professional development focused on advocacy practices and resources. It will address the Lasallian commitment to association for the educational service with the poor and the Rights of the Child.
