The 7-Day Challenge to STOP Family Separation
One of the tenets of The Schoolbox Project’s Child Protection Protocol is to ensure that displaced children are never separated from their parents. From a child's perspective, family separation is one of the most traumatic and devastating impacts of war, and can even be more traumatic than witnessing death or being personally injured.
When separated from their families, minors are at severe risk of exploitation, trafficking, abuse, and death. ICE has just conducted a massive worksite raid at seven locations in six cities in Mississippi, leading to the arrest of nearly 700 immigrants and the largest single-state worksite enforcement action in our nation’s history. By now you have probably seen the viral video of the devastated children left behind to sleep in a gym, after no one came to pick them up from school yesterday.
As an organization dedicated to protecting children, we condemn this shocking and inhumane policy. Join our 7-Day Challenge starting 8/12/19 to help #stopfamilyseparation.
