We've seen the images and heard the stories coming out of child detention centers. Children suffering in unsafe, unsanitary conditions. Children traumatized by our federal agencies. Children dying in U.S. custody. And immigrants being treated like criminals in defiance of human rights laws and fundamental humanity.
On a daily basis, immigrant communities in Illinois live with the fear that imminent raids and escalated activity by ICE will tear families apart. We see more information each day regarding deplorable situations at the border - where government officials deny there is a humanitarian crisis, where children are treated as less than human, and where more children have died in immigration custody in 2019 than in the past 10 years.
In Illinois, we are taking a stand.
We reject the framework of hate + profit. Instead we envision a movement that builds intersectional power among our vibrant communities and a nation that recognizes the incredible social and cultural value of immigrants in our society.
Join She Votes Illinois as we support immigrant rights, social justice and grassroots organizations in protest against the administration’s destructive policies and actions, and take a stand to welcome immigrant communities in solidarity. Add your voice to those in the movement to end criminalization, detention and deportation of immigrant families in the United States.
