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.

Back to the Border

Mostly healed up, made some shoe modifications, and headed back to the border now.  Be sure to follow along via the SPOT beacon shared page (click on the SPOT image/link to the right to follow my location live), and I'll try to update the page whenever I can.  Don't forget to "Like" the Facebook page (link also on the right)! Many thanks for the continued interest and support, and please share this with your friends!
