Join Loretto in Call to Biden/Harris To Reunite Migrant Families Separated at U.S. Border

Posted on November 24, 2020, by Loretto Community

“Every day that passes adds to the trauma that these children continue to endure at our hands. Reuniting these children with their families would do much to restore decency and integrity in our country.”

– Letter to President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris

As part of our commitment to be a healing presence, a source of hope and a force for justice for immigrants/migrants and their families, the Latin America/Caribbean Committee on behalf of the Loretto Community is calling on the new Biden/Harris Administration to take immediate action to reunite the over 500 migrant children who were separated from their families at our border due to atrocious U.S. border policies. We have written a letter to be delivered to the Biden/Harris Transition Team and are soliciting endorsements from our community and beyond. We believe in the transformative power of personal and institutional initiative to create change. Add your voice of support by signing the letter below and forwarding to your friends, families and colleagues for endorsement. Click here for a pdf of the letter.

The deadline for endorsements is Monday, December 7th.  For questions, write to [email protected]

    Love your commitment to justice and peace issues. I was at your retreat place in Kentucky for an 8-day retreat. Would love to keep in touch with you. Will continue exploring you web page. Perhaps you have a newsletter and I can sign up for that…
