Come join us in an opportunity for children and youth of all ages to engage in advocacy about immigration issues. According to the most recent executive orders regarding deportation of undocumented immigrants, those who are not criminals and who have family ties in the United States are not supposed to be targeted for deportation.
However, thousands of parents are deported away from their children every year in the United States, leading to enormous struggles for health, security, and safety for their kids (both those who remain in the US and those who try to reunite with their families in countries that are completely unknown to them).
“We Belong Together” is a campaign for children to write cards to Congress and President Obama requesting that families be kept together, not divided by deportation or immigration status. The campaign hopes to gather 20,000 letters by November 30. Just sign up and they will give you the information, and take care of mailing your letters, too! It is a way to help those in need in a very unique and life-changing way and a wonderful Sunday school project.
