A day of fun for refugee children

$3,600 goal

Campaign created 14 days ago
Right now, thousands of refugee children are being terribly traumatized by the Trump Administration’s inhumane agenda of separating and jailing unaccompanied immigrant and refugee minors and families at the border. These impacted kids are very much in need of a day of fun - a respite from their daily worries. 

We at the Workmen’s Circle are continuing our tradition of social justice activism in support of immigrant and refugee rights by fighting back against the current administration’s bigoted and dangerous policies. We do this through campaigns to counter the Administration’s agenda, and also by directly helping unaccompanied immigrant and refugee children who have been picked up by U.S. Border Patrol or who have been separated from their families at the border, and who are currently being cared for at Abbott House – a welcoming home and caring place for immigrant and refugee children currently separated from their families. 

Over the summer, the Workmen’s Circle helped 51 immigrant and refugee kids from Abbott House spend a wonderful day at our Camp Kinder Ring . This month, we are continuing our important work with a second day at Camp Kinder Ring in October with the Abbott House kids. To make for an even more meaningful experience, we’re bringing students from our Westchester, Midtown and Brooklyn schools, as well as members of our teen activism program Youth Stand Up for Justice to take part in the day. 

For at least one day these brave children get to be kids – enjoying a day filled with fun, friends, and creating great memories.
