    So the Lantern Tour, a five-city concert series starring a rotating cast of singer-songwriters, was organized in response to the Trump administration’s policy of family separation at the border between the United States and Mexico. Funds go to the Women’s Refugee Commission.

    The Lantern Tour, as the brief five-city itinerary is officially dubbed, was in many ways a pleasant 20th-century throwback. Organized by the Women’s Refugee Commission, the benefit gathered Browne and fellow Americana luminaries Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle and Shawn Colvin.

    La idea era hacerlo público, elevar sus voces a través de la música y protestar sobre lo que ocurría en los centros de detención de Estados Unidos de familias y niños, para respaldar a la Comisión de Mujeres Refugiadas, una ONG que respalda a esas personas, cuyos derechos humanos no se han respetado.

    Conceived by Harris and Earle as a response to the Trump administration’s “family separation” policy for immigrants seeking asylum at the US-Mexico border, the Lantern Tour is designed to keep a spotlight on the issue in a chaotic time. Proceeds will benefit the New York-based Women’s Refugee Commission.

    Emmylou Harris has a long history of using music to do good works as a global citizen. In 1999, she founded the Concerts for a Landmine Free World and in 2016 brought Steve Earle, Robert Plant, and others to Philadelphia on the Lampedusa: Concerts for Refugees tour. Now the angelic-voiced country harmony singer is back with Earle, Jackson Browne, Shawn Colvin, and Lila Downs in tow for The Lantern Tour, a benefit for the Women's Refugee Commission, which raises money on behalf of migrant and refugee families at the U.S.-Mexico border. It's an everybody-on-stage-at-once acoustic evening.

    Leah Chavla, an international human rights lawyer and policy advisor at the Women’s Refugee Commission, emphasized that there is a difference between “coaching” and legal guidance asylum seekers might receive ahead of a credible fear screening.

    “It’s frustrating to see due process guarantees and people knowing their rights being described as ‘loopholes,’” she said.

But, she said, "none of the children" at the site "were receiving schooling or regular mental health care, among other benefits to which they would be entitled if they were placed in a licensed shelter."
