Border Delegation

In March 2019 Harness and Families Belong Together brought a group of artists to Tijuana to witness how asylum seekers are being treated at the US / Mexico border. Through conversations with families who are waiting to seek asylum in the US, immigration lawyers and shelter managers our delegation learned about the realities of the humanitarian crisis and family separation that is often left out of mainstream media coverage and political rhetoric. Artist participants in the delegation included America Ferrera, Wilmer Valderrama, Ryan Piers Williams, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington, Gina Rodriguez, Kendrick Sampson, Roselyn Sanchez, Paola Mendoza, Angela Robinson and Alex Kondracke.

Harness produced a short documentary with NowThis to amplify the stories from the border.
