Lena Dunham And Evan Rachel Wood Protest Border Crisis In Texas

In Tornillo, Texas, celebrities Lena Dunham, Evan Rachel Wood, Amber Heard and Sia have gathered to protest family separations at the US-Mexico border.

Dunham took to her Instagram account, with its over 3 million followers, to share her experience. “We came to Tornillo, Texas, to show our solidarity with the families who have been separated, the children who are alone, the parents who are grieving and the undocumented Americans who are losing more than I can fathom,” Dunham said. “Thank you, Tornillo, for showing us a warm border welcome and reminding us that together we rise.”

Similarly, actress Evan Rachel Wood is using her social media presence to encourage followers to get involved with her campaign, using the hashtag #EvanInTX to draw awareness. Wood will be going on a 24-hour hunger-strike, and is encouraging others to join her.

Check out the hashtag #BreakBreadNotFamilies to follow its progress.
