United Way Statement Regarding the Separation of Immigrant Families at the US Border

United Way of Western Connecticut is deeply concerned about the separation of young immigrant children from their parents. It is hard to imagine a more vulnerable person than a child who may be fleeing violence and oppression in their home country. It is unconscionable to further victimize such a child by taking them from their parents. That is simply not who we are as a nation.

United Way is a non-partisan, non-political organization and believes that Americans must work together to find an immediate solution to this urgent matter.
