Five ways you can help stop family separation


Catholic Charities USA offers five ways each of us can work to stop family separation at the US border: 

(1) Pray: You can find a prayer for migrant children here.

(2) Speak Up: Sign our Action Alert and share with your networks. Also consider contacting your senators and representative directly by phone to voice your concern. You can find the number for your representative here and your senators here.

(3) Take Action: Contact your local Catholic Charities affiliate to learn about their material/volunteer needs, consider fostering an unaccompanied child, or join the Share the Journey global solidarity campaign with migrants and refugees.

(4) Give: To support agencies that are helping families and children impacted by the crisis. (100% of your donation will go to the 21 Catholic Charities agencies assisting unaccompanied children)

(5) Learn More: To learn more about Family Separation, visit the Justice For Immigrants (JFI) “Family Separation Webpage” to review backgrounders, educational material and a webinar.
