Border Community Alliance offers access to the rich heritage and great potential of the US/Mexico borderlands of Arizona/Sonora through education, research, cultural exchange, and advocacy for social welfare in partnership with FESAC, a Sonoran NGO.

Join us in discovering the beauty, challenge, culture and energy of the Borderlands. Whether you are stopping by our website for a brief visit, vacationing in Southern Arizona for a short time or a new resident, there is much to discover in this intriguing corner of the world we sometimes call “the Borderlands.”

Where to start? Our website includes a number of short articles and videos to acquaint you with the border region and BCA. We highly recommend taking one of our Cross Border Tours. These one-day ventures across the line into Mexico are a great introduction to the area. They are very popular so check your calendar and sign up soon through our new online registration system. You’ll also want to check out our “events” calendar to look for workshops, classes and breakfast gatherings. And if you like to read, we have a special introductory reading list for you to consider.
