Kids in Need of Defense (KIND)
In the U.S. and internationally, KIND meets children where they are. We are global experts on the rights and needs of unaccompanied and separated children and the laws, policies, and practices that affect them. In response to multiple dangers faced by unaccompanied and separated immigrant and refugee children and the need for a holistic, long-term approach, KIND works to address current challenges head-on, create systemic change, and provide critical services at all points during a child’s journey.
American Civil Liberties Union Foundation, Inc.
Founded in 1920, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, multi-issue, 1.7 million member public interest organization devoted to protecting the civil liberties of all people in the United States. Recognized as the nation's premier public interest law firm, the ACLU works daily in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The ACLU dares to create a more perfect union — beyond one person, party, or side, our mission is to realize the promise of the United States Constitution for all and expand the reach of its guarantees. The ACLU Foundation is the 501 (c)(3) arm of the organization.
