#FamiliesBelongTogether

Mount Trashmore // Virginia Beach, VA

 

Today, Families Belong Together Marches are happening across the US.

Living in Virginia Beach, my hometown, I wanted to check out what my local area was doing and see who was our marching - holding up signs - and chanting. 

I saw people gathering at Mt Trashmore Park, the park that used to be a mound of trash turned into a beautiful park for walking and running.

Here are the photos of people who were out, showing support for immigrants and their children. I've also taken photos of the opposition from the march.
