Thank you so much to @fams2gether & @iwillharness for organizing a trip to the border at Tijuana yesterday to see how asylum seekers are being treated firsthand. As a mother, it was a heartbreaking to see how poorly we are treating refugee families. We MUST demand better for these families. We need to take action and create change to fix the broken asylum system. Thank you to everyone who joined us on this day of witness: @kerrywashington @roselynsanchez @hereisgina. Special thank you to @wilmervalderrama, @americaferrera and @ryanpierswilliams for organizing. #SupportingFamilies #HarnessBeyondBorders #SeparationOfFamilies

This is NOT a political debate. It’s purely a conversation of people being there for people.. the humanitarian crises in the border is a call we have to answer.. we HAVE to understand that this is beyond our differences.. you have the right to believe and stand for what your heart feels. But being there for another human, in their moment of desperation.. it’s what we as people do with honor. Our brothers and sisters have basic needs, that while they wait the faith of their sacrifice.. would at least help them survive the many trials that come with their journey and fight for living a better life, no matter where that is.. @iwillharness and @fams2gether partnered to visit and witness one of the shelters that help those seeking a better life, a life that in many of their cases are not guaranteed in their countries.. #HarnessBeyondBorders To know more on how you can help or donate, here below are some of the orgs doing the work on the ground!: FamiliesBelongTogether.org EspacioMigrante.org AlOtroLado.Org
