Since I reached out to ask this community to step up and support the groups working to protect and reunite families that have been separated at the border, you’ve raised more than $1 million dollars that will be split between the teams at the American Civil Liberties Union, the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, Human Rights First, Kids in Need of Defense, La Union del Pueblo Entero, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, United We Dream Action, We Belong Together, and the Women’s Refugee Commission.
To each and every person who made a donation, no matter how big or small: Thank you.
You may have heard about the White House's just-announced executive order. It will mean more families and children are kept in detention centers and jails for longer -- and it doesn't offer a plan to reunite families already separated. This is not a solution.
Right now, protests, marches, and other events are being organized across the country for Saturday, June 30th to demand our government stop treating these children and their parents like criminals -- take a moment to find one near you, then say you’ll join millions of Americans in standing against this cruel practice.
One mother unable to find their infant or one child being kept in a cage would be unacceptable. What’s happening right now is a crisis so overwhelming that it can be difficult to know how best to help, but your voice is needed now more than ever.
Please sign up for a rally in your community -- or to host an event of your own -- and take a stand on behalf of immigrant families:
