Become an Ally
Human migration is driven by an unwavering love for our children and willingness to do anything to protect them. It is among the most basic and beautiful aspects of human nature.
Yet today more than ever this act of love is being criminalized: Families who risk everything by crossing borders to seek safety for their kids are being persecuted when they reach the United States.
Over the past two weeks, 638 parents traveling with 658 young children have been cruelly separated from their families under a new “Zero Tolerance” policy at the border. And new reports reveal that kids are being abused, assaulted, even lost at the hands of the US government.
Your monthly donation as one of Alianza Americas’ #AlliesAcrossBorders helps power our critical transnational work. As little as $10 a month helps us support migrant families and children across borders.
Allies support our efforts to:
- Mobilize our member organizations, representing more than 100,000 migrant families, to speak out on the injustices to migrant children and families.
- Coordinate fact-finding delegations to Central America to gather data and first-hand testimonials of the harsh conditions that drive migration from the region.
- Educate the public on the ways that our systems are failing migrant families, and mobilize transnational advocacy for policy change.
Since its inception in 2004, Alianza Americas has fought for migrant families’ rights to be recognized across borders. We believe that families should stay together and that kids should be able to grow and thrive in their countries of origin. However, if migration is the only option for their safety or security, they should be fully protected across the migration route and received with compassion and care in the US.

We believe that children, no matter where they come from, belong with their families — not in for-profit detention centers. We call on the government to #KeepFamiliesTogether and seek #AlliesAcrossBorders to support our work: https://bit.ly/2za4qL5
