Families Belong Together Rally - Toronto

We know these issues don't just exist in the United States. We know they also exist here at home. 

Something needs to be done immediately about the abusive segregation of aasylum-seeking families and their children on the United States, Mexico border. Taking children away from their parents and placing them in such conditions is evil and will have long term psychological, emotional and physical impact. 

This is a human rights violation and the United States needs to be held accountable for its horrendous actions. 

We are here to support ALL children's rights and put a demand on the United States to end the separation of children from their families at the border and reunite children separated back with their families. Canada needs to speak out and make a clear statement that such egregious human rights violations will not be tolerated. 

Our hope is that taking the steps to bring wide attention to this issue and pressuring our own Country for policy change to right all of the wrongs here at home. From Indigenous children to the detention of children in our own Country. 

If you agree that families belong together and that this act of child abuse needs to end immediately come out and show your support and Let's send a loud message to the world that we need to hold a high standard for the treatment of children. There needs to be immediate actions taken to bring these families back together. 

We are coming together on behalf of the children who don't have a voice. Show what it means to be a human being and show your compassion for all those who have clearly lost their humanity.

This event is hosted by LAEN Latinx, Afro-Latin-America, Abya Yala Education Network and Women's March Canada.
