March for Detained Children Witness Radio: A Podcast About Immigration

    • News

No Place for Kids. Let Our Children Go! It was April 30th, 2021, Mexico’s Children’s Day — El Dia de las Niñas y Niños, which happened to coincide with the 100th day of the Biden administration. Witness at the Border, together with over 80 national and international sponsors, and in collaboration with local partners — the Border Network for Human Rights, the Coalition to End Child Detention, and the Hope Border Institute — convened at the Paso del Norte Bridge in the borderlands of El Paso, Texas. From there, we walked six miles to the gates of Fort Bliss, the largest military base in the United States, which as of this recording was holding nearly 5000 migrant youth.
Participants rallied to hear speakers shed light on the injustices committed by detaining children, particularly children in trauma , and particularly during a deadly pandemic — an issue that we believe should be on the minds of all Americans.
This episode of Witness Radio is an effort to recreate that important day and to spread the word, from the borderlands and beyond, about what is being done to children in all our names.
Join us as we bear witness in the defense of human dignity and the human rights of migrant children and their families.
Speakers in order of appearance:
Rabbi Josh Whinston Temple Beth Emeth
Joshua Rubin Witness at the Border
Veronica Frescas Border Network for Human Rights
Marisa Limon Garza Hope Border Institute
Susana Herrera-Villa Border Network for Human Rights
Dr. Amy Cohen Every. Last. One

Adriana Cadena Border Network for Human Rights
And me, Sarah Towle, Host & Director of Witness Radio
