Pax Christi USA will present its 2012 Teacher of Peace Award to Ruben Garcia, Director of Annunciation House in El Paso, Texas. Ruben will talk about the vital work of accompaniment that has been Annunciation House’s mission since 1978:
In a Gospel spirit of service and solidarity, we accompany the migrant, homeless, and economically vulnerable peoples of the border region through hospitality, advocacy, and education. We place ourselves among these poor so as to live our faith and transform our understanding of what constitutes more just relationships between peoples, countries, and economies.
