End Family Separation Now.

Across the country, people of faith are outraged by the Administration’s new policy of splitting up families who are seeking safety in the U.S. This website and the campaign it supports are a partnership among state and national faith groups. Our goal is to give Americans of all faiths concrete opportunities to take action and to advocate for an end to our nation’s inhumane treatment of our vulnerable brothers and sisters.

End the Injustice at the Border

Dear Attorney General Sessions,

I believe your “zero tolerance" policy is inhumane and un-American.

As a person of faith yourself, you know we are called on to welcome the sojourners and protect the most vulnerable. It is a moral outrage that our nation would tear children from their parents’ arms, imprison families indefinitely, or turn away the persecuted.

Faith communities know first-hand the plight of displaced people around the world. Leaving their home country is often the only option parents have to provide safety for their children.

It is wrong to “make examples” of the poor and vulnerable. Callously punishing families to create a deterrent is a hallmark of brutal regimes, unbecoming of our republic.

I add my voice to those of people of faith around the country calling on you to desist from this terrible practice.

The Administration’s family separation policy is inhumane and unAmerican.

Faith communities know first-hand the plight of displaced people around the world. Leaving their home country is often the only option parents have to provide safety for their children.

It is a moral outrage that our nation is tearing children from their parents’ arms and sending families back to danger. 

It is wrong for American politicians to “make examples” of the poor and vulnerable. Callously ripping apart families to create a deterrent is a hallmark of brutal regimes, unbecoming of our republic.

People of all faith traditions and all walks of life from across the country are calling for an immediate end to this terrible practice. 

Add your voice: Sign the petition…and urge your friends and family to sign.

But don’t stop with a signature! On this website you will find other opportunities to take action.   Most important, make sure your elected representatives know where you stand…and pin them down about where they stand, too.

There is no moral ambiguity here.

Love does no harm to a neighbor.

Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Romans 13:10

What Can Faith Communities Do?

Bearing Witness

Our faith traditions direct us to “bear witness” to injustices so everyone will know about them. People of faith in border communities are responding to needs on the ground and see the situation first-hand, but they need help to get information out to the rest of us. Please let us know if you are able to attend court proceedings, observe activity at ports of entry, or find out from folks working at crisis centers what their most pressing needs are.

Other Ways to Help

Across the country, people of faith are asking what they can do to support migrating families and mitigate the damage the Administration is doing.

We are reaching out to folks on the ground at the border and throughout the legal and social support communities for concrete answers and we will be posting information here continuously.
