Add to Calendar 2022-08-20 14:00:00 America/Los_Angeles Save Friendship Park President Biden has approved plans to resume Trump's border wall, plans that would destroy Friendship Park. The historic meeting place for binational families and friends between Tijuana and San Diego will be sealed off by 30-foot walls. On August 20th, 2022 we will create an art installation of empty chairs on the US side of the border, while the Mexican side of the border holds a concert to celebrate 51 years of Friendship Park. Each empty chair will represent someone who would like to be there if U.S. Border Patrol would just OPEN FRIENDSHIP PARK! Sponsor a Chair and make a statement at our public art installation!

Story

President Biden has approved plans to resume Trump's border wall, plans that would destroy Friendship Park. The historic meeting place for binational families and friends between Tijuana and San Diego will be enclosed by 30-foot walls. This year is the 51st anniversary of Friendship Park and we are fundraising to save the park!

YOUR DONATION WILL:

  • Support ongoing efforts to expand public access to the U.S. side of the park.
  • Create opportunities for thousands of families who depend on this access to reconnect with their loved ones.
  • Promote our vision of a truly binational park at this historic location, similar to the binational parks that already exist on the US-Canada border.
  • Build support at every level of government to create "International Friendship Park," as was envisioned long ago.

YOUR NAME WILL BE LISTED ON OUR WEBSITE, OR YOU CAN GIVE ANONYMOUSLY.
