*Advocacy: End Family Separation

“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:40-41

"The 223 General Assembly Condemns the President’s June 20th Executive Order “Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation” that further criminalizes migration through the expansion of family detention on military bases and other government property, potentially indefinitely.

The president’s order does nothing to address the plight of the more than 2,300 children who have already been separated from their parents under the president’s “zero tolerance” policy. The reality is that it may not stop separating families, will not reunite the thousands of families already torn apart, and aims to lock up even more children and families."

Act today using the PCUSA Office of Public Witness' Grassroots Toolkit.
