Help Children Today

The rights and well-being of immigrant and refugee children are under attack, and it’s time to take a stand. Alone, we are powerless, but when we join our voices together, we are loud and we are powerful! Help us raise our collective voice and put an end to the injustice and cruelty against immigrant and refugee children. Make your voice heard now!

STEP 1: SPEAK OUT

Sign Our Petitions

  • Every day the immigration courts remain open during the COVID-19 crisis endangers children, judges, respondents, law enforcement, attorneys, and the public.  KIND is calling on the Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR)  to follow federal CDC health guidelines and #CloseTheCourts now!

SIGN NOW

  • Unaccompanied children—one of the world’s most vulnerable groups—are currently being denied entry into the United States.  Help us tell DHS that it needs to follow the law and exempt unaccompanied children and asylum seekers from this southern border closure and allow them entry to the U.S.

SIGN NOW

STEP 2: SPREAD THE WORD

Follow and Share on Social

Let people know the injustice migrant children face is not acceptable, and we must take a stand to make it stop. Follow KIND on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and use the following hashtags to amplify our efforts to protect children:

  • #ProtectFamilies
  • #KeepFamiliesTogether
  • #EndFamilyDetention

STEP 3: SUSTAIN THE CAUSE

Become a Monthly Donor

We know we have to play the long game. The root causes of violence and injustice against migrant children run long and deep. That means we must ensure our efforts and programs are sustainable, especially through consistent, dependable funding. Monthly donors are a major way we do this.

Become a monthly sustainer to stop cruel, inhumane policies that endanger migrant children and help ensure none have to face legal proceedings alone.
If you can’t, then give what you can – every single dollar makes a difference in a child’s life.

 

DONATE NOW

STEP 4: STAND FOR CHANGE

Call Your Representative

During times of crisis, one of the most impactful actions you can take is to call your representative to take a stand for migrant children and urging them to support KIND’s policy recommendations. These recommendations can cause sweeping, large-scale change for migrant children.

But while we can provide them, your voice is the one and only way we can ensure they hear them!
