Caravan for the Children

A campaign demanding the Release, Reunification and Healing of migrant children still in ICE custody

caravan for the childrenCaravan for the Children Campaign is a national 100-day effort to demand the release, reunification and healing of migrant children still being held in ICE custody across the country. Organizers seek to hold all elected officials accountable to the Biden Immigration Plan.

We seek to organize, fund and implement a campaign focused on the first 100 days of the Biden/Harris administration. Spearheaded by a coalition of well-established San Francisco Bay Area artists, advocates and community-based organizations that are volunteering time, resources and talents to this effort, the campaign’s anchor organizations include CARECEN SF, Chicana/Latina Foundation, Galería de la Raza, Instituto Familiar de la Raza, and Latinx Racial Equity Project.

GOALS

The goals for the Caravan for the Children campaign are:

  1. Increase awareness of the impact of current immigration policies and their traumatic impacts on migrant children and their parents
  2. Engage the community to endorse, support and get involved with our campaign
  3. Call on local officials to pressure legislators to prioritize freeing the children
  4. Activate immigration networks, advocates and allies to support the campaign
  5. Caravan to the San Diego-Tijuana border and to Washington, DC within the first 100 days to demand that elected leaders #UncageReUnifyHeal
