Here are the children’s declarations

Hundreds of sworn declarations have been filed from children (and parents on behalf of their children) in the class action lawsuit, Flores v. Barr. Flores is a class action lawsuit first brought in 1985 to end the mistreatment of immigrant children. Unfortunately, because of the continuing abuse and neglect of children in federal custody (some experts categorize it as torture), the case remains active to this day. 

There is tremendous pain in these children’s stories and we ask that you gently embrace their stories with humility, openness, and respect, and find a way within your talents, gifts, and calling to share their words with the universe in the hope that the truth will ensure that these practices end so that these children will suffer no more. It might be a poem, a song, a sermon, a rally, a billboard. Only you will know. Please answer the call to amplify their voices and elevate the truth.
