The Child Migrant: Children Crossing Borders

On November 13, 2014, the CHRC hosted a day-long educational program to provide Loyola students and the community an opportunity to learn more about this critical children’s rights issue. Who are children and families leaving their homes? What are their experiences migrating alone through unfriendly territory and systems? What is happening to children once they arrive in the United States, and what happens to the children who are sent back? What is being done to respond to this humanitarian crisis?

Cecilia's World: Bringing Light to the Darkness of Children in El Salvador, an initiative by Dr. James Garbarino, Senior Faculty Fellow, Center for the Human Rights of Children

Cecilia is a five year-old child living in a poor and violent community of El Zaite in El Salvador. El Salvador has a long history of violence, oppression, and poverty. This slide documentary chronicles how Cecilia's world today - poverty and gang violence - was shaped by the history of her country. It then describes the efforts of Loyola University Chicago's "Solidarity in Education" project to "adopt" the school that Cecilia attends and support its programs, in collaboration with International Partners in Mission.
