The day started at a local shelter, the Espacio Migrante family shelter, where artists interacted with over 20 children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, and received a detailed overview of current conditions from shelter leadership and residents. Families from shelters Roca and Camino de salvación also joined.

The delegation also participated in activities with children including distributing Coloring Without Borders coloring books and spoke with women who were participating in female empowerment workshops in honor of International Women’s Day, helping to distribute supply packs provided by Baby2Baby. They also visited a Border Crossing to observe the asylum turn-in process.

The Families Belong Together coalition includes nearly 250 different groups comprising tens of thousands of Americans from all backgrounds who have joined together to fight family separation and promote dignity, unity, and compassion for all children and families.

Regina King Recalls Awkward Conversation With HFPA Member

Regina King strikes a pose on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s Awards Extra issue!

Here’s what the now 48-year-old If Beale Street Could Talk actress – who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the 2019 Oscars – had to share with the mag:

On living Oscar season firsthand: “It is very cool to be 47 and [have] this s–t be new. Having this experience now, I see a whole ‘nother regard for film.”

On a moment leading up to the Golden Globes, during which a Hollywood Foreign Press Association member struck up an awkward conversation: “He said, ‘So, the other members are telling me I should know who you are.’ I just let him keep talking, and he said, ‘Yes, and you just were stunning in the movie, just fantastic in the movie. But you’ve been working for a while. You’ve done some Tyler Perry films?’” Regina pauses, recalling how she shook her head and tried to press through. “I said, ‘No, no, I’ve never done a Tyler Perry film.’ And it’s just that moment of, like, man—you could just say that you thought I was great in the movie. You want to be gracious, but then there’s a part of you that wants to say, ‘We’re not all the same person.’”

Gabrielle Union on Regina: “There are very few people that everybody categorically f–s with—and Regina is just one of those people.”

Kerry Washington on Regina’s career path: “If you came to this planet from Jupiter and you watched [Regina] on set, you would not know that her path to directing was through acting. She speaks so many of the languages of filmmaking as beautifully as the acting part.”

Fellow If Beale Street Could Talk star KiKi Layne on bonding with Regina: “I don’t even call ReginaRegina’ too often. When I see her, I call her Mama.”
