Break the Cycle: Vigil to Protect Central American Children

Thank you to all those who came to Monday’s vigil in support of Central American migrant children fleeing violence in their home countries. Last week’s August 11 vigil — sponsored by GHRC — was one of a series of weekly events coordinated by the DC-MD-VA Coalition in Support of Children Fleeing Violence.

“Often the effort is not made to protect these children, or to understand the situations that many of them are fleeing — this is why we want to maintain a focus specifically on the children and on the humanitarian crisis, not only here in the US but also in Central America,” said GHRC Assistant Director Kathryn Johnson in a Telemundo article covering the vigil.
