The demonstration was one of many across the country, sparked by reports of children and adult asylum-seekers being held in inhumane conditions at detention centers.

Demonstrators we spoke with say their goal is to bring attention to the treatment of migrants and what they say is a "humanitarian crisis." They also want the government to quickly reunify children with their parents.

The rally was organized by Indivisible Northern Nevada, NARAL Pro-Choice Nevada, Progressive Democrats of America Reno, and Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada.
