Webinar: Hope for the Holidays 2019

October 7, 2019

The holidays should be a magical, wondrous time for children. But this year in America, hundreds of children and families will be spending the holiday behind bars — because they crossed the United States border seeking protection.

As we prepare for the launch of our 2019 Hope for the Holidays campaign, join us for an informative webinar on Tuesday, October 8th at 3:00pm ET about how you can make a real difference to these vulnerable families — whether it’s writing cards, donating children’s toys, visiting a detention center, raising funds or more. You’ll learn from experts about the current state of immigration issues in America and hear from volunteers about their experience with Hope for the Holidays activities last year.
