The border today often is depicted as a place of crime, violence, disorder, and dysfunction. This photo essay from Elizabeth Johnsen for the Opportunity Agenda counters that depiction:
"Over the past year, we have heard a dominant narrative of our border that is harmful, inaccurate, and misleading. Instead, what we know from our partners who live in the border regions is that our border communities are vibrant. They are made up of growing families, thriving small businesses, exquisite wildlife, and generations of activists and change makers -- communities working together to tell a more accurate and life-affirming story about the land that they call home."
