If you haven't yet seen the new A Wish for the Holidays video, please take a minute to watch it. The children are adorable, and the message — children's wishes for an end to deportations so that all families can stay together — is powerful.
Since we announced this campaign a week ago, we've received pledges totaling over a thousand letters. That's a good start, but our goal is to collect 5,000 letters by the end of the month.
Can you help us collect the 5,000 letters that can help keep families together? Pledge here.
We are asking children and youth to write letters about why families should be able to stay together. We will collect these letters and deliver them to the Obama Administration and key leaders in Congress in time for the holidays and International Human Rights Day.
- Can you pledge to collect letters written by children and youth? Letter-writing can happen in schools, youth groups, childcare centers, and homes. www.webelongtogether.org/wish includes background materials, activity guides, and all the information you’ll need to collect and mail in letters.
- Can you forward this letter to your contacts and encourage them to get involved?
- Will your organization co-sponsor the campaign? This means being listed as a co-sponsor on our website, and helping to mobilize your constituency. You can sign up to sponsor at www.webelongtogether.org/wish.
A Wish for the Holidays is a campaign of We Belong Together, a collaboration of women’s and immigrant rights groups including the National Domestic Workers Alliance, dedicated to highlighting the impact of immigration enforcement on women, children and communities.
