    CALL TO ACTION: Children at the Border - April 2021

    The Early Childhood Education Profession is once again outraged by conditions and circumstances impacting children along the border:
    • At this moment, over 16,000 unaccompanied children are in custody
    • These children are placed in detention facilities – a perpetuation of "kids in cages"
    • The facilities are overcrowded, with unsafe conditions for any young child
    • As a national crisis, we see no clear plan or solution for uniting children with families
    As early childhood education professionals committed to the welfare and well-being of all children, we feel compelled to respond to the plight of thousands of refugee/immigrant children and adolescents along the southern border of the United States.
