We are children: not the ones living in war, not the ones lacking basic resources, not the ones missing school. We are children: the children who can make a difference. The BASIS Peoria UNICEF Club has been working to raise awareness about the migrant children crisis and bring about progress one step at a time. We have held meetings with the legislative assistants of Senator Kysrten Sinema, Representative Debbie Lesko, Representative David Schweikert and Representative Ruben Gallego to discuss the state of migrant children and flag important UNICEF propositions, advocating for alternatives to overcrowded detention centers, and increased health screening and services at the southern border. We have also written letters to several local newspapers to further spread our message. Step by step we are working together to help children throughout these trying times and beyond.
