Find & Document Separated Children

I am a law professor and international children's rights scholar and advocate who has been volunteering with the team of attorneys  interviewing children and the families at the border under the Flores agreement. The team is being led by Peter Schey of the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law. In light of the recent crisis, the Flores team needs many more attorneys, interpreters, child therapists, and other professionals to volunteer to meet with children who have been separated from their families in all of the locations where they are being held. I have heard from a number of people who are willing to volunteer to interview these children, but do not have the funds. I have also been hearing from people who cannot go, but would like to help pay for others to do so. Thus, I am setting up this campaign in my individual capacity to match sponsors and volunteers so that we have enough money for every separated child to be interviewed and documented so we know who they are, where they are, who their parents are, and can prepare declarations that can be submitted to the court in Flores. One hundred percent of these funds (after GoFundMe and credit card fees) will go to funding direct modest travel costs for volunteers. If any funds remain once this crisis ends, they will be donated to the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law, which is the organization responsible for ensuring the enforcement of the settlement terms under Flores.  If you have any questions or would like more information or would like to be matched with a specific volunteer or volunteers, please feel free to contact me directly. Otherwise, thank you for trying to help these children in whatever way you are able.
