In early November, Stand Together
brought Common Ground, its experiential pop-up installation, to the D.C. Wharf,
attracting the attention of many in the nation’s capital, including Hill
staffers, national media outlets, and even NFL Legend Shaun Alexander and
pro-football colleague Dhani Jones.
Launched earlier this fall in Miami, the
traveling exhibit aims at fostering much-needed conversations about
immigration. Its key message highlights the simple fact that there is more that
unites us than divides us—even when it comes to contentious immigration issues.
The pop-up features nine doors that, when opened, offered
attendees various videos aimed at sparking conversations about immigration.
The exhibit will make an additional 10 stops in 2020.
