This is why I will be going to a Detention Center in Dilley, Texas next week - to provide pro bono legal services to Immigrant mothers and their children - detained in The South Texas Residential facility. This is the consequence of family separation... this is one of the lucky ones(lucky not even being the right word to use) - many families are still detained and or separated. Many with no access to legal representation. We can’t stop until every child is reunited with their families and every family is out of detention! Volunteer. Get involved. Donate. Join efforts. #weareallhumans. .
. . .
Reminder: The consequences of family separation will far out-last this administration.
Watch one family's reunion after months of separation. .

My open letter to the dreamers and to anyone who has ever had a Dream: “We are at a time where our ideals are at stake and we all have to fight for who we are! I believe this is that moment in time for our country, where we are collectively being required to look in the mirror and we are asking a question: who are we? -who are we as individuals? Who are we as a nation? Who are we down to our core? - In the words of Coretta Scott King: “Freedom is never really won. You earn it and win it in every generation! It is the very nature of this fight for civil rights, justice and equality...that whatever gains we make they will not be permanent! So we must be vigilant! Do not despair! Do not be overwhelmed! Do not throw up our hands when it’s time to roll up our sleeves and fight for who we are!” So to the Dreamers and to all of you who have ever had a Dream- there are going to be good days and bad days... BUT we must not give up! We have to keep going! We must believe in our dreams till the end! This recent petition asking the Supreme Court to bypass the lower court review to end DACA is an extraordinary attempt to harm Dreamers. The decision to end DACA was cruel and arbitrary and we will keep fighting in courts and congress until all the dreamers are protected!” #daca .

That's it for explaining our projects in Afghanistan ! We hope you learned a few things. Thanks for following us. Greetings from our juvenile justice team in Jalalabad, one of the most insecure cities in the country, particularly for women. But working for children gives us hope and courage.

I'm reading All About Love by Bell Hooks and came across this quote by Judith Viorst. .
.
.
I couldn't help but think of the THOUSANDS of children who were separated from their families earlier this year with their fates left up in the air. .
.
.
Some were reunited. A good portion were kidnapped and "adopted" by families across the U.S. and hundreds are still floating in the system, scared and unsure whether they'll see their parents again. .
.
.
It breaks my heart to know that these families were exposed to such cruel and inhumane treatment and will have to live with this trauma for the rest of their lives. And it brings an uneasiness to my stomach to know that the fate of the refugees migrating as we speak through Central America may be greeted with a similar fate. .
.
.
Family separation is an act of terror that only the souless could justify.
.
.
.
Reunification is not enough. As you can see in reunification videos, many children are struggling to reconnect after being separated and questioning the love bond between them and their parents. These families need access to mental health services (in addition to resources in order to live a dignified life in the U.S.) and the tab needs to be covered by the corrupt people who endorsed, instated, executed & are profiting from these policies & institutions of terror. .
.
.
Our people have migrated fueled by the power of love in the hopes of creating a better tomorrow and will overcome this persecution with the power of love and community. .

We organise training and awareness sessions for justice professionals on child rights, child laws and safeguarding of children during the justice proceedings. This helps them better understand the specific needs of children and youth, adapt their techniques and integrate them into their professional practices.

Tdh also organises awareness sessions for parents and community elders to raise awareness about children’s rights and how to protect them.

Children and youth enjoy taking part in the recreational and psychosocial activities in the centre. “It is helping us forget our problems” they told me.
“When I’m at home, I have many problems, I am always in  thoughts but when I come to the centre, all my thoughts and concern go away.”
“These activities bring positive changes in our attitudes and remove our physical and emotional tiredness.”
“I get a lot of benefits from this centre and the activities. It brought very positive changes in my life, it changed my thoughts which I had at home and eliminated my depression.” #afghanistan #juvenilejustice #justiceforchildren #ngo #terredeshommes #children #youthjustice

I had the honor of meeting the brave Patricia Okoumou. She climbed the Statue of Liberty to protest the separation of migrant families on the Fourth of July 2018. When I asked her what was going through her mind while she was up there, she said “I was thinking about the children!” May we all be inspired by her courage! #patriciaokoumou #shero #protest #familiesbelongtogether #keepfamiliestogether #forthechildren #freedomrings #endfamilyseparation #returnthechildren #endchilddetention #ladyliberty #✊🏾#humanrights #Freedom #freedomfighter

Our team in Afghanistan runs a centre to protect vulnerable women and children from coming into contact with the law in the first place or through recidivism. They have often been through violence or were forced to work on the street. In this centre, they can receive psychosocial support, learn basic literacy and take part in vocational training. This helps build up their skills and capacities and protects them from coming in contact with the law.

Why I refuse to give up: “During my most recent visit to the border/detention center- I witnessed the most raw and deep pain as I sat with sobbing mothers, children, fathers...human beings. In each moment, I saw, and felt, the maximum extremes of the human condition. I saw impossible despair mingled with fervent hope. I heard the most desperate pleas for help, the most passionate cries to save their babies from the certain death that awaited them upon deportation. .
-
I saw people who yearned to live in a place where they could be safe. Most of all I saw parents who would do anything for their child, including making a dangerous journey across foreign lands for the hope of a safer life. I saw lawyers working past the point of exhaustion, running between cases for the chance to help one more person tell their story.
-
I heard children crying. I can’t recall a single moment in the center without hearing the cries of so many children. This was the worst part, the constant reminder of the suffering of children and the inability to do anything in the moment to make it better. Mostly I saw suffering. So much suffering.
-
Most of the families in detention are fleeing persistent, horrific domestic abuse, gang violence, police corruption, political persecution, or a combination thereof. Nearly all face certain death if deported. Rarely is a “lawyers work” a matter of life or death. The gravity of this work is that a negative finding leads to deportation and a return to their perpetrator. .
-
The look of confidence and hope on the faces of women who felt heard and validated by us made all of the work worth it. I will never forget every individual I have met, and I will never stop fighting for them. .
-
To everyone who has read this far- Vote. Join efforts. Get involved. The lives of thousands depend on it.
-
As for me- this is why I will never stop fighting. “.
