      Kids Rising: Standing Up for Families At the Border

      Recognizing that children hear and see what’s going on in the news and that hearing about the mistreatment of children and families can be upsetting, “Kids Rising” will focus on offering comfort and solace by helping children process this disturbing situation through writing and art, with the goal of empowering them to express their feelings and stand up for families at the border. Four different activity stations for kids of all ages will include: CARD-WRITING tables where children can write messages or draw pictures to send to the President. An ART STATION for kids to make and take home their own Mexican paper flowers. COOPERATIVE GAMES with structured play stations for small groups. And a READING CIRCLE that features a comfy space for looking at books that celebrate our diversity.

      Parents will also have an opportunity to write cards and letters to their Members of Congress, and adults without kids will have a separate space for letter-writing if they prefer. Fact sheets, postcards, stationery and stamps all provided.

      We are also accepting donations that will be matched dollar for dollar for Pisgah Legal Services JUSTICE FOR ALL Project, which helps immigrant children and families in Western North Carolina.

      Kids Rising is sponsored by Indivisible Asheville/WNC, Stronger Together WNC-North, and Madison County Indivisible.

      Cost: Free - Free and open to the public. Drop-ins welcome any time between 2:30 and 4:30 pm.
