This January podcast features an interview with Jimmy Marcelin, the playmaker at Safe Harbors, San Diego, where 100 to 300 immigrants arrive daily after crossing the busiest border crossing in the world, the Tijuana to San Diego crossing.

They’ve crossed into the U.S. through the Tijuana-San Diego crossing, just 17 miles south of Safe Harbor’s facilities in the Christ United Methodist Ministry Center where Jubilee OneEarth Economics also has an office. The San Diego-Tijuana crossing is currently the busiest anywhere in the world.

Safe Harbors is the organization which does this amazing work of receiving immigrants who arrive with a host of unmet needs—so many needs everyday that you may well be able to help. Check out their website

Safe Harbors is part of the multicultural, multilingual ministry center called the Christ United Methodist Ministry Center. The immigrants who arrive are sometimes delivered by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and is part of the U.S. Dept of Homeland Security. ICE is much in the news for the horrors that happen to so many people in the name of enforcement of border security. These horrors are increasingly being stepped into by organizations determined to humanize the treatment of migrants. In addition to ICE’s inhumane and atrocious activities, they also process some people who have papers or seek asylum. Some of these people, ICE delivers to Safe Harbors.

We invite you to travel with OneEarth Jubilee to the Jubilee Circles in Mexico. Rachel Miller-Haughton [ will be leading the next Delegation and we want you to be part of it. Going to see is the best way to understand ways that resistance to unsustainable MultiEarth living is being practiced by people in the Mexican states of Puebla and Chiapas. It’s inspiring to see the ways OneEarth living is being shaped by people in the Jubilee Circles and the many low-income and Indigenous peoples with whom they work. Let us know of your interest. You’re sure to have questions. We’ll give you the best answers we can so that you can make a decision that’s right for you. But for our part? We encourage you to come with us and see for yourself. You’ll go to fascinating places tourists never go … and a few they do. Let us hear from you.

The Common Good Podcast #102FAIR TRADE in Schools and Congregations (12/1/18)

This episode features Lee’s conversation with Anne Pacheco and Diane Hartley on how they brought the Fair Trade Campaigns to their school and congregation—St Martin of Tours, LaMesa, California.

For most of us the news about free trade agreements, tariffs and trade wars feel quite beyond our control. But in this podcast we talk about a different paradigm of trade, and it’s the kind of trade over which we have lots of control. We’re talking about the trade structures known as FAIR TRADE. And just how do we exercise our power regarding trade that is fair? In elementary schools, high schools, colleges and congregations. That’s what you’re about to hear about. Stay with us.
