Follow and Amplify Voices of Journalists and Activists
Thousands of children are still being held without their parents in the custody of US Border Patrol at our Southern borders. This unconscionable policy
of separating migrant children from their parents has been going on for over a year and children continue to be held in what amount to modern day concentration
camps under horrifying conditions.
What can we do to stop this? One easy action is to follow and amplify the voices of investigative journalists, activists, and organizations who are doing on the critical ground work to raise awareness, pressure our government to change their policies and practices, and ensure that immigrant and refugee families get the resources and support they need. Follow them on social media, read their publications, and share them with others, amplifying their voices and making sure that this issue stays front of mind for the American public.

Another thing you can do is read and share this important information from the ACLU on immigrant rights (it's available in 14 languages), including what to do if the police or ICE show up at one’s home: https://www.aclu.org/know-your-rights/immigrants-rights.
