On Mother's Day this year, join us in a conversation about families who won't be together. Families separated by our government, children still living in a tent city outside Miami, in Homestead, the only for-profit child detention center in the country. I'll be in DC but you can participate from anywhere. Tweet, post on Facebook, donate to the ACLU or your chosen charity, have a conversation. Spread the hashtag: #MotherOfExiles.
