Families Belong Together: A Message from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation
At the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, we are committed to improving the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged people throughout the world. We echo the deep concerns of many Americans and our partners on the ground regarding the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that has resulted in thousands of children being separated from their parents entering the U.S. along the Mexican border.
Our commitment to early childhood development and young people in foster care compels us to speak out when children are being exposed to unnecessary and irreversible trauma. Children should not be detained, and families belong together.
