No child should ever be torn from their parents, and no parent should have to wonder when or if they’ll see their child again. But with the reunification deadline set by a federal judge fast approaching, thousands of families who have been separated at the border by the Trump administration still need to be reunited — and in some cases, children have been sent to states far from where their parents were detained.
There is something we can do right now to help. A coalition of groups is raising money for flights, hotels, and cell phones for families traveling to reunite with their loved ones — so far, they’ve raised more than $180,000 and helped more than 400 families. Chip in here.
Those working to reunite families on the ground have shared incredible stories, from a little boy reunited with his mom just in time for his birthday to reunited families settling in together to watch Pixar’s Coco on a quiet evening.
Let’s make more of these moments happen. Donate right now to help cover travel expenses and more to families separated at the border.
