This is a historic moment where we can help shape our own legacy and the type of nation we leave for future generations. Are you with us?
Sign now to get tools that will help us in the fight to end family detention, especially during this pandemic.
Media reports show young children and teenagers in makeshift detention facilities being subjected to horrific conditions: no showers for days or even weeks; denial of adequate food, water or clothing; rampant illness and overcrowding; denial of basic amenities such as soap and toothpaste; temperatures that are freezing cold or extremely hot; sleeping on hard concrete with bright lights.
This is an urgent situation. The trauma we are inflicting upon these children and their families will impact the rest of their lives, and some have already died in detention.
