HELP SAVE THE CHILDREN
Don't look away!
Project Amplify is a national campaign launched to establish legal protections for children in government care so that the brutality discovered on the border in June never happens again. How? We are sharing the children’s stories themselves in their own words with the public in a variety of amplification events around the country that will also include experts in medicine, mental health, law, economics, immigration, human trafficking, history, social welfare and the arts. Visit Project Amplify
The evidence is consistent, and damning—children are being hurt. We don’t have to agree on the outcome in order to do the right thing.
