The number one thing you can do to help borderlands people and wildlife is to let your members of Congress know you don’t want a border wall and you want them to stop it. This becomes even more powerful if you find out how they voted on border wall funding–and tell them what you think of their vote.
Being an advocate for the borderlands means reaching out to those people who are responsible for the border wall that has already been built, holding them accountable, and demanding that they stop wall construction. In short, it means calling, writing or visiting the offices of your members of Congress.
