Every day, thousands of children are taking a life-threatening journey without their parents or caregivers to flee brutal violence in Central America. They are aware of the dangers, but many of these children, mostly from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, have told KIND that they had no choice. They are being targeted by gangs, narco-traffickers, and other criminal groups from which their governments cannot or will not protect them. To stay was certain harm or death, but coming to the United States offered a glimmer of hope for a safe and stable future. And once in the United States, they need attorneys to help them make their case for U.S. protection.
They are children first and foremost and deserve the care and protection that we give to all children. To help us remember this, KIND has launched a campaign that showcases drawings by children referred to KIND, accompanied by facts to help us understand why they need our protection.
Please follow our #KINDstories campaign and show your support for unaccompanied children.
