END CHILD DETENTION PETITION

I sign this petition to support the Global Campaign to End Child Detention.

Consistent with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, detaining a child on the basis of their, or their parents migration status is a child rights violation.

I urge states to take the lead and end child detention.

Sincerely,

[signature]

THE GLOBAL CAMPAIGN TO END CHILD DETENTION 

Tracking progress on child detention around the world

The Global Campaign to End Immigration Detention of Children was launched during the 19th Session of the UN Human Rights Council in 2012, to draw attention to the many detrimental effects that immigration detention has on children, and to encourage states to cease the immigration detention of children consistent with their CRC obligations.

The Campaign urges states to adopt alternatives to detention (ATD) that fulfill the best interests of the child and allow children to remain with their family members and/or guardians in non-custodial, community-based contexts while their immigration status is being resolved.

The Campaign coordinates international, regional and national activities with the goal of raising awareness of the issue of child immigration detention and encouraging states to “expeditiously and completely cease the immigration detention of children” consistent with the CRC Committee’s guidance.
