From left are; Janice Blair, Claire Nelson, and Barry Nelson. The three are part of a group, “Grannies Respond,” that left from Beacon last week and are headed to the border in Texas in several vans picking up people along the way in several states, to help protect the inhumane treatment of immigrant families as well as support those working on the ground. Gathering national attention and momentum in just one month, the energized group, who will be holding sing- alongs, marches and other forms of unity during their 8 day trek, is hoping to help incite the immediate return of children with their parents.
