Facebook Live: The Border is Here, The Crisis is Real for Our Children and the Time is Now

Family separation is not a new problem, it echoes across Indigenous American cultures, or an American problem, for example there is the “stolen generation” in Australia. Here and now, “It’s a bipartisan issue that will not be corrected overnight. We have to commit as health care providers to demanding change because families’ long-term health and wellbeing are at risk,” says Nancy Glass, PhD, MPH, MS, RN, FAAN, professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.

In “The Border is Here: The Crisis is Real for Our Children and the Time is Now,” experts Nancy Glass, Carmen Alvarez, Paul Spiegel, and Kathryn Laughon describe the status quo and discuss the health and wellbeing implications for the children and families who have been separated. “We commend the ACLU for leading the charge, and the American Academy of Nursing for speaking out against this human rights violation,” said Dean Patricia Davidson, who moderated the event.
