As someone who avoids confrontation at all costs and never shares political/personal opinions on here too often, I’ve been deeply disturbed by the current situation of the 13,000 + children separated from their families at the border and the horrible conditions they’re living in. Watching courtroom footage of a lawyer trying to explain how not providing soap and toothpaste to children who are sleeping on concrete floors with aluminum blankets with the lights on all night doesn’t breach the “safe and sanitary” conditions of the for-profit camps made my stomach turn. Whatever your views are on border security, I would hope we could agree as a country that children should never be subjected to these horrific conditions during an age when you’re so fragile in your emotional and mental health, especially while being separated from your families. One tangible way is to give to @together.rising, where 100% of funds help to go to a law team with access to the camps to provide facility inspections and obtain medical records of the children. I feel like the “out of sight, out of mind” mentality can make it so easy to overlook these issues, but I’m thankful for people like @glennondoyle who are fighting for voiceless children. I put the link in my bio if you feel like donating.
