People are marching across the country and abroad today to protest the Trump Administration’s policy of separating families at the US-Mexico border. The recent initiative — falsely referred to by Trump and others as a law they’re bound to enforce — has been widely decried, with more than 2,000 parents still separated from their children.

Though no official numbers have been released, individual marches are estimated to have drawn tens of thousands of protestors — including such celebrities as Laura Dern, Ava DuVernay, Carrie Coon, and Natalie Portman.
