Welcome to the Global Campaign to #endchilddetention, together we are a mighty civil movement! This is a place to inspire you to learn, educate and connect, that cherishes the humanity and dignity of children. 

Immigration detention is a child rights violation and yet, children are detained every day around the world.

Children experience severe physical and emotional effects of detention, and these can last a lifetime. 

Now is the time to encourage our supporters and partners to put pressure on national governments to take action. Will you join us?
