Over Webster University's fall semester 2019 break, a group of faculty and students travelled to the border wall to work with A Resource In Serving Equality (ARISE), a non profit that aids the colonias along the U.S.-Mexico border wall in Texas. The colonias are unincorporated territories that are generally low income and lack basic services.
During the week long trip, volunteers held presentations, gave health exams and visited Humanitarian Respite Center. Their experience was reported on in Webster University's student newspaper, The Journal.
