I worked on a multimedia package that covered  The Border Network for Human Rights, a nonprofit group based in El Paso, Texas, that advocates for immigration reform and human rights, hosted three “Hugs Not Walls” events on the U.S./Mexico border. Families who had been separated by denied visas or undocumented crossings were given the chance to embrace one another for a few minutes, only to be separated again.

The video won the Pinnacle College Media Association’s first place award for Best Viral Video.

Additional coverage of BNHR events:

“Keep Our Dreams Alive” was held to reunite families and shine light on Dreamers who live on the border and are fighting to protect DACA.
