On a Serious Note...

It's a shame Wilberforce isn't out here with them. Why won't Brutus and Gladys let Wilberforce out of his...room...?

Seriously though, if you are currently feeling small and insignificant about what's happening with children coming into the country and being separated from their parents and guardians, there are things that you can do to help an innocent young child crying for their parents in a strange new land.

Donate to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES)

Call your Senators and Representatives. Choose your state or enter your ZIP code and call, email, or fax your voice in Congress and let them know what you think.

Encourage others to call their Senators and Representatives.

Find a local protest. Find the closest protest to you and commit to join.

Donate to Together Rising or the ACLU.

It shouldn't matter that these children are coming over with "aliens crossing the border illegally", the United States has a history of doing this to children from taking babies born to slaves away from their parents just to be resold into slavery; Native American boys and girls being taken and placed into boarding schools and forced to learn to become "white"; we even do it today under the guise of "Child Protective Services". You would think we would actually learn from history and be better than this. We need to be better than this.
