build the wall! build the wall!

There’s so much time and attention going to walls—but not the ones we need most. How can our representatives debate borders, when millions of people go without basic shelter?

So, we hatched a crazy idea: Let’s build walls, and actually get Mexico to pay.

We partnered with a super cool local nonprofit, the Low Income Housing Institute, who’s been building tiny homes throughout the area to help the homeless get off the streets.

So, all that was left was tracking down former President of Mexico, Vicente Fox, and getting him on board.

Then, we found him. And then he said yes.
