Parents Petitions/Photos to Sen. Clinton for Family Rights

This page has a collection of the names and pictures of parents & children unjustly separated.  We have posted the most recent photos at the top of the page.  These pages are our “petition” to Senator Clinton to encourage her to personally meet with parents.  They are placed on a simple card about 9″x12″ in size and carried in the hall outside her offices.  Click here for info on our campaign. To the right of each image we have their names and their story (a link to our Hall of Shame page when available).
