Shut down Homestead detention center!
Join us to demand an end to child detention
Children belong in schools and homes, not in prison camps. But today, at least 2,000 child migrants are being held at the Homestead detention center in Florida – the largest detention site for child migrants in the U.S.
Most of these children have fled violence and poverty in Central America and are seeking asylum. But instead of being released to their families or other sponsors in the community, many will spend weeks or months in detention – with lasting traumatic effects.
AFSC stands with migrants from Central America and other parts of the world who are seeking safety and peace. Please join us and many others to shut down Homestead detention center and end child detention.
