University Sin Fronteras is taking its emancipatory education model and curriculum on the road. We are part of the team from the Southern Movement Alliance traveling 10 cities in 5 states with ten people in the US South. This is part of the Unite to Fight campaign-maneuvers building the movement towards the Southern Movement Assembly IV to be held in Atlanta, Georgia in August 22-23, 2014.
