Advocate for innocent immigrant children in U.S. Government custody


The past two years have shown what change is possible when ordinary people raise their voices and take action.  We are calling on Americans across the political spectrum to advocate for innocent immigrant children in detention facilities.  Start by getting informed and learning the facts.


We are so thankful for every person who has contacted us with an offer of help. These are the most important actions we need you to take to support the goals of the Teach-In For Freedom.


Call,  email or visit the offices of your elected officials. Ask local, state and congressional representatives, Senators and Congress people, to hold hearings, pass a bill, and appeal to President Trump to end the detention and criminalization of immigrant children and their families.
