Client: Purpose in partnership with Elana Berkowitz, Avani Agarwal of Google, and in solidarity with the National Domestic Workers Alliance and the Families Belong Together coalition
Children don’t belong in cages. Families belong together. Indefinite detention is not an option. Our voices are being heard but we can’t rest until families are reunited and babies aren’t behind bars. 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.
#StandforKids helped children and families to take a stand for families at the border by making their own solidarity lemonade stands to raise money for an amazing group of 14 organizations working at the border. The campaign was extremely successful, with many children and families taking part across the country.
Stand For Kids was even featured here by Vogue in an article about how to talk to your kids about the crisis at the border. The photos of children around the country hosting lemonade stands to raise money for families at the border were heartwarming and truly a story of hope in this dark time.
