Speak Up

Keep Families Together

CDF asks you to stand up and speak out and insist this harmful policy be reversed. CDF has joined 540 other national and state organizations from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico on a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen asking that the Trump Administration end this harmful policy. We ask you to speak out and get others in your own communities and states to speak out and to take action to end this damaging anti-family practice.
