One year ago, we rallied to stop separations of families at the border. Today, the crisis continues. Children are facing horrifying conditions and reporting being hungry, cold, sick and scared, with no access to soap and water. Sex assault and retaliation have been reported. This is no time to sit on the sidelines. We must continue our fight for justice for all people.
