Keeping Families Together Campaign
These families will be the voice of the “Keeping Families Together” campaign. They will lift the veil on the moral crisis of family separation and tell their story of our broken immigration process to illustrate why we need change now.
Uniting with immigrant activists, advocates and champions, these families will demand a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country. The Keeping Families Together campaign tour will stop in cities across the country, including New York, Detroit, Kalamazoo, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., among others. Family stories will be told at campaign rallies, vigils and community dinners and will be recorded and shared with policymakers.
Keeping Families Together is a project of the Fair Immigration Reform Movement and powered by the Center for Community Change. It brings together individuals, community organizations and leaders, and elected officials from across the Nation who support humane immigration reform and policies to keep families together.
