Freedom for Immigrants
Abolishing immigration detention.
Freedom for Immigrants is devoted to abolishing immigration detention, while ending the isolation of people currently suffering in this profit-driven system. They visit and monitor 55 immigrant prisons and jails, and run the largest national hotline for detained immigrants. Through these windows into the system, they gather data and stories to combat injustice at the individual level and push systemic change.
Deeply saddened by the idea of children detained and separated from their parents, KicKee contacted Freedom for Immigrants to see how we could help. Since many of the children have nothing but the clothing on their backs, we donated more than 300 soft and snuggly items in hopes of keeping them warm, including tops, bottoms, footies, coveralls, outerwear, PJs, layettes, rompers and dresses, and some KicKee books and matching plush toys for some innocent entertainment and furry companionship!
