As Americans take to the streets to #KeepFamiliesTogether today (June 30), several celebrities are marching in solidarity and support of the families who have been separated from their children at U.S. borders in recent weeks.
The cruel practice has moved artists like Lin-Manuel Miranda, John Legend and Common to speak out against the current administration and its immigration policies while encouraging their fans and fellow citizens to act.
Selena Gomez, Alicia Keys, America Ferrara and many more are lending their voices to the rallying cry, either by showing up to one of the several marches taking place across the country or showing support for the movement on social media leading up to the events.
Here are some of their dispatches below.

Trying to make our film today, but Gal and I growing increasingly distracted by the fact that there is somehow not an aggressive and swift effort to reunite these kids with their parents. What kind of people are standing in the way of such a thing? #Childrenbelongwiththeirparents pic.twitter.com/pk1Vdi8CYv
