This is a Move-on initiative:

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

TAKE A STAND: JOIN FAMILIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY THIS WEEKEND BY HOSTING YOUR OWN LEMONADE STAND.

Parents everywhere are grappling with how to talk about this with their kids—and how, together, we can make a difference in solidarity with immigrant families at our borders. You can collect funds at your lemonade stand and then make an online payment to a coalition of 14 groups protecting immigrant kids being taken from their families.

Groups include Al Otro Lado, The Florence Project, Neta, Innovation Law Lab, Fuerza Del Valle, The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights, We Belong Together, United We Dream, The Women’s Refugee Commission, The ACLU, Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, Human Rights First, and La Union de Pueblo Entero.

Give away a free cookie or lemonade to your neighbors who:

Write a postcard or letter to an immigrant kid being detained without their parents at the border. National Domestic Workers Alliance will help deliver them.

Sign up to participate in an event as part of the June 30th Families Belong Together National Day of Action. (If you can, have a phone, laptop or tablet available with the website pulled up and ready to go so you can sign up your customers right then and there!)
