You are invited to contribute drawings to the Singing Tree to Reunite Children with Their Families collaborative mural in order to raise awareness about an injustice. 666 children were separated in 2018 from their families as they came to the United States to escape violence and poverty. The Immigration Service deported the parents and said they didn’t keep track of them. It has come to light in December that ICE does have contact information, though the current administration has said that they will not make efforts to bring the children to their families.
We are co-creating a large visual statement that acknowledges the importance of each of the 666 children. The mural envisions the children reunited with their families. In addition, we are raising money for Families Belong Together who have taken on the responsibility of reuniting the children, since the Federal government is not. (We changed from the ACLU because they are not as targeted on the issue of reuniting the children.)
This is a free project. If you can, please consider making a tax-deductible donation of $10 or more to Paypal.me@UnityThruCreativity for each submission, marked Mahogany ST. You can send a check made out to Unity Through Creativity to the address below. 50% will go to the Families Belong Together.
The Mahogany tree was chosen to honor in this Singing Tree because it grows in central America and is in danger, just as these children are in danger. 10% of the Project revenue will go to plant Mahogany trees in Central America through IGiveTrees.
