The Young Center For Immigrant Childrens Rights
The Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights works to support and champion the rights of unaccompanied immigrant children. It works on a three step program that prioritizes serving the children as soon as they enter the country, advocating for their rights, and standing for the creation of a more comprehensive immigration system that protects children's rights.
The Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) works to prevent unlawful deportations by connecting refugees or refugee families with legal aid. ASAP provides "rapid representation at a distance," and reports that it has represented refugees in 25 different states. Join us as we work to ensure that all persons fleeing persecution are given a chance to reach their full potential and contribute to their new community.
Tahirih Justice Center
Tahirih Justice Center runs the Children’s Border Project, and they work with hundreds of kids that have been released from ORR [Office of Refugee Resettlement] care. To date, most of our work with that issue of family separation has been working with the parents in the days when they are being separated: when they’re in the federal courthouse being convicted; partnering with the federal public defenders; and then in the adult detention center, as they have no idea how to communicate or speak to their children or get them back before being deported.
Amnesty International USA
Our vision is of a world in which every person – regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity – enjoys all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and other internationally recognized human rights standards. The UDHR states that the "the recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights" of all people is "the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world."
