Universal Children’s Day - Banner Drop - November 20 

On November 20, 2019 from 4 - 6pm, Shorewood High School’s Shorewood Amnesty International will lead a demonstration of local youth, parents, and community supporters to demand action from policymakers and elected officials to end child detention. 

“Regardless of their migrant status, everyone deserves basic human rights and all families belong together and free” (Sofia Gerrard, President of Shorewood Amnesty International).

There will be a banner drop at the 185th Street I-5 Overpass to make a statement and urge legislators to take action. In a time of hate and violence, we, the youth, must be the voices of change and action.

Shorewood Amnesty International is a youth-led chapter of Amnesty International

I wish they cared this much about families torn apart by violence in places like Baltimore or Chicago. I wish they cared this much by families separated by narcotics abuse deaths. I wish they cared this much by those lawfully and legally here.
