Drawings By Themselves: Portraits of America

This week, we are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.  We will be releasing a project called Drawings By Themselves: Portraits of America, which provides children and parents in immigration detention with a platform to share their artwork and their stories.  The project will be launched at 6pm at the Church Center for the United Nations on November 20th, and it also will be available on-line.

Please watch the promotional video above and share it widely!  Many thanks to our project partners, the International Detention CoalitionLutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, and the Global Campaign to End Child Detention, as well as co-sponsors of our project:
