Event Description
Pedacito de la Tierra | A Little Piece of Home

On Saturday, February 6, 2021, Burners Without Borders and Alight are kicking off Pedacito de la Tierra (A Little Piece of Home), a global movement to create sustainable spaces of hope and refuge for people experiencing migration, beginning at the U.S./Mexico border.  


You’re invited to virtually join our global, decentralized table alongside community members gathered in Nogales, Sonora for a meal, a film premiere, and conversation about cultivating belonging in our own homes and across borders and cultures.


Together we will: 


Share in meaningful conversation with people on their migration journey, world-renowned architect Ron Rael, and Alight collaborators.  


Cook a recipe shared from the migrant community, led by globally-recognized Chef Charles Michel  


View the world premiere screening of the short film, “Pedacito de la Tierra”, inspired by the people and places at the heart of this initiative. 


<< Watch the Pedacito de la Tierra film trailer here >>


All are welcome – this is a family-friendly event and we encourage you to share this opportunity with your friends, families, neighbors and colleagues! 


Everyone needs safe space – to nourish, to rest, to dream, to be - everyone deserves un Pedacito de la Tierra.


This event is co-hosted and brought to you by Burners Without Borders and Alight.
