We’ve all seen the stepped up hateful rhetoric and threats against our migrant family. Threats to further militarize the border, to move people to Sanctuary cities, and to use the military to round up and deport people. All while ICE continues to terrorize our communities and our country cages migrant children! But what you may not know is that this administration is very vulnerable right now, particularly for its cruel policies that separate families. And that’s why we need to act now.
- Sign the Petition to Close Down the Homestead Child Detention Center. Our coalition’s goal is to get to 100,000 signatures and deliver them to the Health and Human Services Department which has the power to shut Homestead down. We will also deliver the petition to Members of Congress.
- Help children write letters to Congress Download our letter-writing toolkit for children. This can be a family and congregational activity.
- Join UUs for Social Justice on June 12th in Washington DC to deliver the petition and letters.
