Write Letters to Kids

While we're protesting and fighting to free and reunite separated immigrant children and their parents, we also want to let the children still in detention centers know we are thinking of them and fighting on their behalf.

Write a letter yourself or make a family project out of it.

The pages below are for children of all ages to write letters to or simply color pictures for migrant children who are still in detention.

Wondering how to discuss such a challenging topic with your child(ren)? Read our conversation with psychologist and activist Lisa Nakamura.

Here's how send your letter: 

  • Write a letter or print out one of the coloring pages below for a kid to make a letter or card
  • Take a picture of or scan it and email it to us at or
  • Post it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #letterstochildren

We'll forward them to centers where children are still being held.
