The Funded Project:

Partner with the local library for “On the Fence,” a conversation series aimed at building trust, connection and civic engagement in Douglas, Arizona, where a new port of entry has polarized and divided the community.

In Their Own Words:

Spaceship has a track record of creating meaningful conversations about the most polarizing issues in our nation: guns, immigration, abortion. In On the Fence, we will convene a conversation in Douglas, Arizona about the construction of the new port of entry slated to replace the exisiting Raúl Héctor Castro Port of Entry.

The proposed port has polarized the community, tapping into deep divisions about immigration, economic growth and development.

We’re keen to learn:

Best case scenario: We create and support meaningful conversation about the port, report and distribute content directly in response to community questions, create a replicable model for news deserts.
