Since 2014, over 100,000 unaccompanied minors have arrived as refugees from Central America. They are held in detention centers across the country while they await time in court to plead their case for being granted asylum. View a film from IBBY & REFORMA, and learn about their Children in Crisis Project, which seeks to raise awareness about these vulnerable youth and to provide resources to them. Donations accepted at the door.
