PRESERVING FAMILIES: A Message from Forestdale’s Executive Director
As an agency that has been working to end cycles of family trauma so children can grow and thrive, Forestdale opposes the separation of children from their immigrant parents when they cross the US border. It has been well established that this practice is harmful to children. Some of the families coming to the border are fleeing violence and seeking asylum. We oppose treating people fleeing hardship like criminals. We are very pleased that the US Government has decided to end this practice and reunite children with their families. Please see links below to current news articles about children who were separated from their parents.
