"Let Them Hug" Campaign Update - 

Denied by San Diego Border Patrol

  • Nearly 1200 people signed our last petition, asking for there to be a "touch time" every weekend, to accommodate the thousands of people who visit the park every year.  

  • On August 17, 2017, this proposal was denied by San Diego Border Patrol.​


     --> TAKE ACTION: Sign our new petition to create a truly Bi-national Park!

Now: People can only touch pinky fingers across the border 

Permission denied:  Currently prohibited despite being possible without any changes to the  infrastructure at the park.

The Friends of Friendship Park is a non-partisan, grassroots coalition of individuals and organizations advocating for increased public access to the historic meeting place on the US-Mexico border.  For more information contact:
