Caravan for the Children Campaign is a national six-month effort to demand the release, reunification and healing of migrant children still being held in ICE custody across the country as a result of the Zero Tolerance policy.

Dear Community Ally,
We are writing to request your endorsement for the Caravan for the Children/Caravana por los Niños Campaign.
When we learned that federal officials were separating immigrant families and detaining children in cages, you probably felt as horrified as we did. For the past four years, our calls for justice, basic human rights, and fairness for immigrant families fell on deaf ears. The Biden/Harris administration has promised to institute very different immigration policies, and we must hold them and the legislature accountable. We ask that they Uncage, Reunify, and Heal the migrant children and their families...Read the full Pledge and Sign
