Immigration and Humanitarian Crisis at the U.S. Border: Families Belong Together

We have been hearing parents, teachers and students question what is happening on the U.S. Southern border and express worry, anxiety and fear about the humanitarian crisis there. AFT members play a special role in their communities, and our educators have a powerful responsibility to their students and families. We have assembled lessons and resources to help you talk with your students and children about the sensitive and emotionally charged topic of family separations and border detentions.

The featured resource collections included here will be of help as you talk and teach about these current events. You may also want to check out:

Our students and their families deserve to know that we are allies in the fight against human rights injustices.
