We are witnessing the worst human rights violations our country has seen in generations.
Young children stripped from their parents’ protective arms.
Undocumented immigrants locked in animal-like cages along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Asylum seekers, criminalized.
Make no mistake about it: the executive order recently signed by President Trump does not undo the damage already inflicted on children and their families by his “zero tolerance” policies. Nor does it address how the nearly 2,000 children still in detention centers will be reunited with their parents – or when.
At HIP, we are doubling down on our efforts to support immigrant families through this painful moment.
We have recently partnered with the Central America and Mexico Migration Alliance (CAMMINA) to address the causes of these migration issues including the growing violence and instability in immigrants’ countries of origin, coupled with increasingly restrictive national migration policies.
HIP is working with other allies to build a united front and develop a comprehensive network of support. Evolving partnerships include the U.S.-Mexico Border Philanthropy Partnership and the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA).
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
By donating, you will help immigrant children and their families receive long-term support from the organizations best prepared to assist. Let us show these families – who are risking everything to provide safety for their children – that we, the people, are better than these xenophobic government policies. Let the families in need know that you stand with them.
HIP will match the first $10,000 donated. Designate your support using the codes “U.S.,” “Mexico,” or “Central America” in the special code section on the payment page.
We cannot stay silent. We cannot sit by and allow thousands of children and families to continue to suffer.
The impact of these traumatic separations will last years.
DONATE TODAY TO PROVIDE SUPPORT AND SERVICES TO SEPARATED FAMILIES, NOW AND INTO THE FUTURE.
