Thousands of children have been separated from their parents as a result of Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy. Jailing parents and children is cruel, immoral and will cause irreversible harm. This is not who we are as Americans.
5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP THE CHILDREN AND IMMIGRANT FAMILIES
Here are 4 things you can do right now to demand an end to President Trump’s cruel and inhumane policy of jailing families for months, even years, and for immigrant families to stay together.
- Call Congress to demand an end to Trump’s cruel and inhumane policy of jailing families indefinitely and for families to be reunited: 1-844-325-5408
- Make a donation to help keep families together in safe communities, not in jails. Here’s a list of organizations that are helping families: Kids in Need of Defense, ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project, and The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES).
- Volunteer. If you are an immigration lawyer or know one that would like to help, volunteer with the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). You can help represent the moms and dads through the process of requesting asylum.
- Share on social media. Use the hashtag #PutFamiliesFirst to push back against family detention.
