Families Belong Together is a campaign of the National Domestic Workers Alliance formed in response to the 2018 family separation crisis. Families Belong Together works with nearly 250 organizations representing Americans from all backgrounds who have joined together to fight family separation and promote dignity, unity and compassion for all children and families.
Led by the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Families Belong Together works closely with the Women’s Refugee Commission, MomsRising, FWD.us, the Haitian Bridge Alliance, the Texas Civil Rights Project, La Union del Pueblo Entero, Al Otro Lado, the ACLU, MoveOn, Amnesty International, RAICES, Cameroonian American Council, Doctors for Camp Closure, Justice for Migrant Women and other groups across the country. Families Belong Together first came onto the scene when we organized nationwide protests in summer 2018 to demand the end of the Trump administration’s family separation policy.
What we do
- Families Belong Together works to permanently end family separation and detention, seek accountability for the harm that’s been done, and immediately reunite all families who remain torn apart.
- We have raised millions of dollars for immigrant children and families, mobilized hundreds of thousands of people in all 50 states to take action, and helped to reunite thousands of families.
- We also work with advocates on either side of the border to draw attention to abuses in the immigration system, hold elected officials accountable, and change the narrative about migrants and migrant families in popular culture and media.
This administration’s attacks on migrant families is an affront to our values and political system. We believe in supporting families and keeping them together, not tearing them apart and caging them.
Families Belong Together will continue to fight this clear pattern of callous disregard for children and human life. We will not stop until this administration ends, and is held accountable for, its practice of tormenting and traumatizing vulnerable children and families.
