Protecting immigrant children in custody
Last Sunday, part of the sermon at Emmanuel Church in Boston was about the separation of children from parents at our national border. After the service, I mentioned to the priest that I feel helpless in the face of this calamity. She replied, “We are never helpless.”
My initial thought was, “Hey, you think I don’t know about activism? I have a master’s degree in women’s studies. I’m all about activism.” But her reply had put a mirror to my passivity. No excuses. There is always something we can do.
So three days later, I sent this to my national representatives. (Click here to find yours.) Maybe this email will make a difference. Maybe my representative, who is going to the border today, will ask about bullying prevention and the safety of these kids.
