Take Action for Babies at the Border

Here are three ways to Be a Big Voice for Little Kids experiencing trauma at the border.

With reports of babies and toddlers being held in detention at our southern border and in facilities around the country, often separated from their families and under grossly inadequate care, ZERO TO THREE and our partners stand in strong, informed opposition to any practice that causes trauma to children.

While we continue to demand transparency from the Administration and Congress and work toward solutions that stop any practice that harms young children, one thing is clear: babies and toddlers at the border are suffering from trauma right now, risking lifelong impact to their development.

Every second we delay is a million neural connections undermined in a baby’s brain. As advocates for children and families, we must act on behalf of babies at the border immediately. Learn more about ZERO TO THREE’s Priorities for Babies at the Border.
