AH&A “Our House” Ep.9: Paola Mendoza

An artist reports at the border

Paola Mendoza believes in the power of art to move people to a place of action. That belief led her to becoming artistic director of the Women’s March. And this past November, it took her to Mexico to tell true stories from the immigrants and refugees in the caravan traveling to the US.

Families Belong Together includes nearly 250 organizations representing Americans from all backgrounds who have joined together to fight family separation and promote dignity, unity, and compassion for all children and families. 

Led by the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Women’s Refugee Commission, MomsRising, FWD.us, United We Dream, People’s Action, ACLU, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, MoveOn and others, the coalition has raised millions of dollars for immigrant children and families, mobilized hundreds of thousands of people in all 50 states to take action, and helped to reunite thousands of families. 

Families Belong Together continues its work to permanently end family separation and detention, seek accountability for the harm that’s been done, and immediately reunite all families who remain torn apart.
