Starting in 2004, members of Unitarian Universalist Church West have travelled bi-annually to Nicaragua to build community and houses. These “Nicaragua brigades” partner with a nonprofit organization called Bridges to Community, which helps volunteers experience their trip through the lens of global interdependence, cultural respect, and economic justice. This year, 29 church members, or “brigadistas,” will be joining the trip to Nicaragua.
