Children belong in schools and homes, not in prison camps. But today, more than 2,000 child migrants are being held at the detention center in Homestead, Florida.
Most of these children have fled violence and poverty in Central America and are seeking asylum. But instead of being released to family members or other sponsors in the community, many will spend weeks or months in detention – with lasting traumatic effects.
Join AFSC, partner organizations, community members, and many others to shut down Homestead detention center and end child detention!
