Project Amplify is a national campaign launched to establish legal protections for children in government care so that the brutality discovered on the border in June never happens again. How? We are sharing the children’s stories themselves in their own words with the public in a variety of amplification events around the country that will also include experts in medicine, mental health, law, economics, immigration, human trafficking, history, social welfare and the arts starting in September 2019 and spanning the next 16 months.

How can I help?

Start by reading the children’s stories. Powerful forces are trying to silence these children, to erase their existence, their experiences, their identities. We must not let them. These stories and their undeniable truth have the power to change the course of history.

AMPLIFY THE CHILDREN’S VOICES.

TELL THEIR STORIES.

 

ELEVATE THE TRUTH.

I have not been told how long I have to stay here. I am frightened, scared, and sad. It is cold at night when we sleep.

How have others contributed?

Amplification events are being planned and showcased in communities across the country and take many forms (digital or live) — a play, a poem, a recording, a billboard, a social media post, a reading, a sermon, an art installation, a website — with different talents and resources. Let us know about your events by registering here and tagging #AmplifytheChildren to showcase your efforts.
