Border Network for Human Rights Finds Home in Newman Park

Louis Gilot and Saul Soto share a light-hearted moment

Since July Newmanistas have had a new neighbor: Border Network for Human Rights. This non-profit organization offices at 2115 Piedras between Richmond and Louisville.

In an email I asked Communications Director, Louie Gilot, to tell me a little about the organization. She responded:

The Border Network for Human Rights moved to its new offices at 2115 N. Piedras in July. The Border Network is an 11-year-old non-profit dedicated to organizing communities through rights education. They have about 4,000 members in communities all around El Paso and Southern New Mexico. For the past several years, the Border has focused on the need for a comprehensive immigration reform and is in the midst of organizing a statewide conference on immigration reform in Austin, February 20. You can visit them at and at The Border Network is delighted to be part of the neighborhood.

Gilot also told me that they are undergoing a major upgrade of their web site. Stay tuned for that. Also, take time to visit Louie's new environmental blog: La Greenga.
