    USA: STOP SEPARATING AND DETAINING FAMILIES

    Children are being torn from their parents and kept in overcrowded shelters.

    SIGN THE PETITION!

    Amnesty International has long advocated for human rights to be respected, protected and fulfilled in the United States of America (US). We have called for an end to the use of torture; for the US naval base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba to be closed; for the rights of women and girls to have access to sexual and reproductive health information and services; for the rights of Indigenous peoples to be upheld; and more broadly, we have called for justice and equality.

    Since President Trump took office on January 20, 2017, the US government has rapidly taken actions that weaken human rights protections. The 'global gag rule' decreasing women’s access to sexual and health information and services abroad has been re-instated. The new administration has taken action to build a wall along the Mexican border. The Dakota Access pipeline, which will violate the rights of Indigenous peoples, has received the go ahead. Funding for programs to help prevent violence against women have been cut. And the list goes on.

    Canadians have joined record numbers of people around the world in marching in the streets demanding justice and equality. The Women’s March on Washington, which Amnesty International proudly endorsed, is an example of the extraordinary things that happen when ordinary people come together to take action.  We have the power to ensure human rights are upheld.
