Even after the executive order to keep families together has been signed, thousands of families continue to be separated without knowing when or if they are going to be reunited again. The “zero tolerance” policy is still in effect now and is keeping infants and children detained indefinitely. Many families, women, and children are fleeing violence, hoping to find safety in the U.S. They are facing cruel and inhumane treatment not only at the border but also at detention centers in various states. Here in Virginia, there have been families arriving from various detention facilities. After traveling many days to get to, NOTHING has been done to help families in need. There will not be reproductive freedom without justice for immigrant families. Please help us collect new underwear (all ages, kids, women, and men) hygiene products, diapers, pads, and tampons.
