Neil Young’s message to songwriters
This is a crowdsourced campaign, which means that anyone can register an event or submit an action to amplify these children’s voices. Each project and action are all independently organized and each organizer will decide where to donate any funds raised. We have simply provided easy access to the children’s declarations, provided a platform for these events to be listed, and made a listing of amplification events submitted to us online or that we found through Internet searches.

News & Events
In the summer of 2019, Project Amplify started a community-driven campaign to raise further awareness for the plight of child migrants. Artists from around the country participated with concerts, poetry readings, art exhibits, and other inspiring actions. Each project was independently created and each participant decided which immigrant rights nonprofit would receive their fundraising. By providing easy access to the sworn Flores statements, or children’s declarations, we created a platform for these events, but we could never have anticipated what happened next. Whether participants were legendary artists like Neil Young or amateur musicians and poets, their beautiful work elevated the voices of migrant children in beautiful and inspiring ways. Scroll below to see some of the highlights. While the COVID pandemic curtailed our events, it didn't slow down our efforts. This spring we launched our first book, and we will continue to advocate for the rights of migrant children until we are confident that they are being treated with the full human rights and dignity that they deserve. Stay tune for more news and events and thank you for your support. #AmplifytheChildren
