Fundholder Day Trip to Tijuana

In September 2016, the Foundation joined with the San Diego Grantmakers to host our fundholders for “Experience Your Border: A Learning Tour of Cross-Border Issues in the Tijuana-San Diego Region”.

During this full-day excursion the group learned about cross-border air and water quality issues and heard directly from the bi-national practitioners, who are working to address them. Guest speakers from U.S. and Mexican civil society organizations, their private sector partners, and the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana discussed how innovative partnerships have influenced the U.S./Mexico relationship on these issues.

The group also got to experience some of Tijuana’s diverse cuisine with a wonderful lunch prepared by the students at the Colegio de la Frontera Norte, and during a happy hour debrief with local craft beers and wines.
