On how we talk to our children about the catastrophes in our world today, from @together.rising: "When scary things happen, look for the helpers. There will always be helpers. And then I tell them that it's not enough to look for the helpers. We must BECOME THE HELPERS. I tell them will will not surrender to despair. Will will not wallow in heartbreak or anger without taking action. Heartbreak without action might as well be apathy. As for us and our house: We will not stand for terrified babies being torn from their mother's arms. As for us and our house, we will not just feel sad -- we will feel and then ACT."
Two ways you can involve your children in the fight for justice at the border: 1). have a bake sale outside a local grocery store and donate the profits. 2). RAICES has a #postcards4families campaign where $5 is donated for every postcard written to the separated immigrant children (each time #postcards4families is shared on social media, a pledge pool is donating $5 to RAICES).
