CHCI Joins Voto Latino to Help #EndFamilyDetention
While the executive order has been signed, there is still a lot of work to be done. We must ensure for swift reunification and call for an end to family detention.
The Trump Administration’s “Zero-tolerance” policy took days to execute but will leave behind a legacy of trauma and chaos in the lives of the children and families affected. This is a human rights issue and we must stand up and be a voice for the voiceless in their time of need.
Join CHCI and Voto Latino on Sunday, June 24, in Texas
to say #ENDFAMILYDETENTION.
