Many are familiar with a nightmarish situation occurring at the Mexican-American border, where 2,300 children have not only been forcefully separated from their parents, but are also being detained by the federal government without due process. Thankfully a court decision has established the legal framework to reunite the children with their guardians - but the deadline came and went, and 1 in 3 children are still being detained with no certainty on the date of their release.
The Las Americas Immigration Advocacy Center is a non-government, non-profit organization that remains on the front lines of this battle. They, in coordination with The American Civil Liberties Union and other human rights organizations, are fighting the legal battles on behalf of the kids. Without the luxury of a significant budget and a large staff, their task is a profoundly challenging one.
We believe the most direct and effective way to help is to provide the Las Americas team with the funding they need to expand their available resources. 100% of the profits from our 'For the Kids' hoodie will be donated to Las Americas weekly until every single child has been freed. This will not only help ensure resolve in this horrible situation, but also expedite the intended results.
Although a simple idea, we believe fashion is an amazing channel to mobilize a generation of young citizens. The rest is up to you!
