Both family separation and detention — unaccompanied or as a family — have proven to be detrimental to children’s overall development and long-term wellbeing. With this in mind, the Alliance developed an advocacy brief to address the separation and detention of children/families along the southern US border. The Alliance also collaborated with the Better Care Network on a second brief to call for improvements on interim care. Both briefs were collaboratively-developed and reflects best practice principles derived from research, field work and international standards of care and protection for children.
This a forum for the Advocacy Working Group. Specific discussions can be open to the Alliance community at large or closed just for the members of the Working Group.
