The BNHR’s mission is to organize border communities through human rights education and to mobilize our members to ignite change in policy and practice. The BNHR has three ongoing campaigns -Comprehensive immigration reform; Accountable and responsible border policy; and Protection and Promotion of civil and human rights.

The strength of the BNHR lies in its grassroots organizing and its willingness to work within the system to combat human rights and civil rights abuses, and to bring about change to our broken immigration system. BNHR members can speak firsthand of the suffering of immigrants under current laws, and now have the tools to advocate for reform.
