The Mother's Day Rally to End Family Separation & Child Detention
began with concerned mothers wanting to make a change to end immigrant family separation and child detention. Our partners along with many groups of diverse backgrounds are stepping up nationwide to send a strong message that our humanity transcends politics or division. This Mother’s Day we will stand in solidarity with immigrant families and their children and will issue a call to action to homes across the country.
The Alliance for Family Reunification is a non-partisan coalition of concerned individuals and organizations seeking the immediate and transparent reunification of families separated at the border. Military Families For Families is a coalition of military families who oppose family separation and child detention. It was started by three military spouses who feel that family separation and child detention transcends politics and that all Americans should stand united against family separation and child detention.
IF NOT US, THEN WHO?
When your grandchildren ask what you were doing when the USA held refugee children and families in internment camps....what will you say? If not us, then who? If not now, then when?
WE NEED YOU
We have a humanitarian crisis on our hands and it is time we live up to the values we claim as Americans. We demand that all families are treated with dignity, respect and compassion.
