Tomorrow, Lemonade Stands Nationwide Will Raise Awareness about Family Separation at The Border

Tomorrow, an organization called Lawyer Moms of America has organized lemonade stands around the country in order to draw attention to the fact that many of the families separated at the Southern border have still not been reunified.

All proceeds from the stands will go to Project Corazon, a venture of the Lawyers for Good Government Foundation that is funding legal assistance for families still fighting for reunification.

Despite court orders to reunite families separated under the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy for asylum-seekers, there are still thousands of children that have yet to be reunited with the parents that they crossed the border with.

“It is unacceptable that thousands of migrant children are still separated from their parents. Sometimes on opposite sides of the country,” said Tovah Kopan, co-founder of Lawyer Moms of America, in a statement issued this week. “We will not rest until every single child is returned to their parent.”

“Kids Take a Stand” will run from 10am until 1pm tomorrow, July 28. Click here to access the Facebook page for the day, which has updates on some locations and information for anyone who would like to host a lemonade stand. You can also text CORAZON to 91999 to donate directly to Project Corazon.
