In conjunction with the American Friends Service Committee, we have deep concern surrounding the treatment of families that are seeking asylum in the United States. We are seeking others with similar concerns to participate in the Love Knows No Borders week of action. We are focused on bringing attention to this pressing issue through love and nonviolence. Together, we are calling on the U.S. to end the detention and deportation of immigrants, respect the human right to migrate, and end the militarization of the border.
