    Right now, we are facing a human rights crisis at our border. Our asylum laws and child protection laws are being undermined. And, the Trump administration is playing a dangerous game of politics with people’s lives - from ripping children out of their asylum-seeking parents’ arms to creating family jails that keep children in detention centers to mandating a “zero tolerance policy” that saw more than 2000 children separated from their parents in just a six-week period.

    For nearly 30 years, the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) has been on the front lines of ensuring the rights and protections of displaced women and children. Our work transforms the lives of women, their families, and their communities—from the current crisis at the U.S. border to conflicts around the world. 

    Examples of WRC’s work in the U.S. and around the globe include: 

    • Monitoring conditions in detention centers, speaking directly with separated and detained parents and children, and documenting human rights violations of asylum-seeking women and their children at the U.S. border;
    • Identifying gaps in protections and services in humanitarian response, making policy recommendations, and advocating for solutions;
    • Elevating gender-based violence as a priority issue across humanitarian settings; and
    • Breaking barriers to sexual and reproductive health services for women and girls.
