We are grannies on a mission. We are outraged by the cruel and inhumane way our government is treating immigrant children and their families who have risked all to find refuge from violence and oppression, say The "GranniesRespond" campaign, which is en route to the southern border to speak up for justice and decency and family reunification.They stopped in Reading, PA., and Louisville. Next stop, Montgomery, Alabama We will not be quiet while little ones are crying alone without the love of a parent to soothe them. We will not remain idle while tent cities are built to indefinitely detain families seeking safe haven in our country. Our government and our institutions do not have dominion over our morality. We the people will be the moral compass of our country and we will not rest until compassion and decency are restored.. Check their schedule here. Meet and greet them."
