Statement of Purpose and Intent

On March 12th, 2011 I began a 400 mile trek along the Arizona-Mexico border from Agua Prieta to San Luis Rio Colorado, an adventure with a purpose I am calling BorderVenture.

Through BorderVenture I hope to raise awareness of border issues, expose exaggeration of border violence, combat the racial profiling, discrimination, and often outright racism that seems prevalent of late, and to record and recount personal stories of people living near or trying to cross the border. I will record my experiences and stories in this blog, and hope to have them further covered by supportive media, organizations, and other websites and blogs. I plan to aggressively publish my experiences through media outlets, interested groups, the Internet, and through whatever other avenues I am able. I will write tirelessly and advocate my findings to all who will listen, publish, and share them.

  1. Evan,

    Saw you in SV Herald and am very interested in what you are doing. I work on the border, and also have a community radio program out of Bisbee that covers border news and looks to promote bi-national border community. Would love to have the chance to talk to you more in depth and am hoping to highlight your trip on this week's broadcast. I don't use facebook. Is there an email that I can contact you at?

    Best of luck,

  2. Hi Patricia,
    Thank you for your interest in BorderVenture. You can contact me at I'll be available for the next couple days as I rest this achilles injury, and I'd be more than happy to talk with you.
