Frontera de Cristo appears prominently in the book as a force working to create a more just border. It runs grassroots projects in Douglas and Agua Prieta, including the Migrant Resource Center.

Just Coffee is a unique Fair Trade cooperative working to confront the causes of poverty and forced migration. Small farmers grow its outstanding product in Chiapas, Mexico. Then the coffee is roasted, packaged, and sold by folks in Agua Prieta. That way more of the profits stay with farmers and workers in Mexico.

The group also provides many other crucial health services to low-income residents of Douglas.
