Race Forward Presents Facing Race: A National Conference.

Organized by the non-profit Border Angels in a belated celebration of Mexico’s Children’s Day (April 30), five families separated by immigration policy and the U.S.-Mexico border were able to reunite briefly on Sunday (May 1) via an opening of the fence between San Diego and Tijuana.

According to Fusion, this is the third time in four years that the border has been opened in this manner.

Border Angels advocates for human rights and immigration reform. The group, which also supports migrants by dropping water in the desert areas often used for passage into the U.S., organized the event in coordination with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The five families selected went through intensive screening in advance of the three-minute reunion.
