     Earlier this year, the Women’s Refugee Commission conducted an extensive fact-finding mission to document and understand the reasons behind the unprecedented influx of unaccompanied migrant children who arrived in the U.S. in the last year. Our new report, Forced From Home: The Lost Boys and Girls of Central America, discusses our findings of why more children than ever are fleeing to the U.S., the need for greater transnational cooperation to address the violence facing Central American youth, treatment of children by U.S. government officials upon apprehension, and our recommendations for how the U.S. government can best address and respond to this ongoing influx. To learn more about our work on unaccompanied children, please click here.

     The Women's Refugee Commission advocates for laws, policies and programs to improve the lives and protect the rights of refugee and internally displaced women, children and young people, including those seeking asylum—bringing about lasting, measurable change.

    The Women’s Refugee Commission thanks Steptoe & Johnson LLP
    for its generosity in hosting the briefing.
