In November of 2017 and 2018, hundreds of people converged at the border wall in Nogales, AZ and Nogales, Sonora, over the course of long weekends.

They shared music and food, and attended panels on both sides of the wall to discuss the situation at the border and beyond.  Those who were legally able to, could cross the border.

In 2017, people could hold hands through the border posts (and did).  By 2018, a rigid metal mesh had been added and people could only touch fingers. By January 2019, multiple long rolls of coiled razor wire stretched across this section of the border wall that splits the town/community/families of Nogales in half.
