Edwidge Danticat has recorded a message for the next US president, which you can see here.

A description from Fusion:

“Immigration reform. Do it.” That’s the simple message for the next president from celebrated novelist and memoirist Edwidge Danticat, who says too many families are being separated and too many people forced into the shadows.

We caught up with Danticat, who was born in Haiti, at the Miami Book Fair. Check out her full message for the next president, and then let us hear your voice: Record a #DearNextPresident video and join the conversation.

Fusion is asking young people around the country to talk about their most pressing issues this election season using the phrase “Dear next president … ” You can learn more about the project, hear more voices from the campaign, and learn how to contribute your own video to #DearNextPresident.
