A Call to Keep Families Together

I can’t take another minute of it. Of more parents being robbed of their children. Of children being caged and dehumanized.

If you are like me, an outraged American citizen, I hope you will consider calling your U.S. Senators today and urging them to vote yes to pass the Keep Families Together Act, a bill that would require the Trump Administration to halt the separations of kids and their parents.

Call 202-224-3121 and a Congressional switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request.

The Keep Families Together Act was developed in consultation with child welfare experts to ensure the federal government is acting in the best interest of children. The bill is supported by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Kids In Need of Defense (KIND), Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), Children’s Law Center, Young Center for Immigrant Rights, and the Women's Refugee Commission.

The bill currently has 48 co-sponsors (supporters). No Republican senators have, as of yet, declared their support. Please consider calling now, especially if you live in a state with a Republican senator not currently supporting the bill.

Call 202-224-3121 and a Congressional switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request.

Your voices matters. In times like this, I’m reminded of the African proverb that says "every waterfall begins with a single drop of water." Thank you for your humanity.

With respect,
