Celia Bavier, the Executive Director of the Border Community Alliance (BCA) will be the speaker at our January meeting. BCA is a Tubac – based nonprofit organization whose mission is to bridge the Southern Arizona/ Sonora, Mexico border and build community through education, cultural exchange, and social investment. BCA implements this mission through educational activities such as Borderlands Forums, a Borderlands Literature & Film Circle, and online Spanish classes; cultural exchange through cross-border tours to Nogales, Sonora, and other parts of Mexico, and social investment in over twenty nonprofits in the Sonora, Mexico region. Celia will discuss BCA’s programming, highlighting its educational events, cross-border tours, and social investment opportunities. 

Celia has worked in program management, fundraising, communications, and advocacy within the nonprofit world for much of her career. For the past several years, she worked on borderlands issues for area nonprofits, including No More Deaths/ No Más Muertes and the Center for Biological Diversity, both based in Tucson. She enjoys bringing people together through common interests and values and through a love of learning and community.
