We Could Use Your Help

December 07, 2021

Thank you to those who have donated to the Border Region Modeling Project’s fundraising campaign!  


So far, we have raised $1,745.


We need to raise $10,000 to fully fund this research and meet our software needs. It’s going to take a crowdfunding effort to help us reach our goal, and we hope you can help us spread the word. If you have friends, family members, or colleagues who might be interested in supporting our work around determining the full cost of the August 3, 2019 El Paso Tragedy, please send them our project link: The crowdfunding campaign will conclude on Wednesday, December 22.


At the Border Region Modeling Project, we are proud of the work we do to inform policy, development, and planning. This particular research project will ultimately impact not only El Paso but also other regions that have experienced mass violence in their communities.


Thank you again for your support,
