“The crisis is worse now than anytime in my lifetime working in Somalia for the last 20 years, and it is because of the compounded effect of the war in Ukraine,” said Mohamud Mohamed Hassan, Somalia country director for Save the Children. 📝
Today SCOTUS ruled that @POTUS can finally terminate the Remain In Mexico policy. This is an important win for migrant children & families, but it's only the first step in our fight for a more humane & just system that ensures asylum seekers are treated with dignity & respect.
Angel, 22, Nepal (She/Her) “I’d like to say to all LGBTQ+ people: Be yourself, and the world will catch up. It will take time but we will get there.”
Meen, 21, Thailand (She/Her) "Teaching children about LBGTQ+ is very important, because they need to learn about diversity and respect. It also encourages children and young people to stop hiding and to feel safe to come out."
Sangsa, 18, Thailand (She/Her) “I hope that there will be a day in the future when our country leaders are LGBTQ+, not just only men or women. I believe it is very important to have LGBTIQ+ representation among our decision makers."
Buay, 15, Thailand (They/Them) “I know many LGBTQ+ people who are very capable of doing a lot of things, but their opportunities are limited because of the discrimination against their sexual orientation or identities. I hope that the discrimination will end."
Dada, 21, Thailand (She/Her) “I hope that one day all LGBTQ+ children and youth can become whoever they want to be without living in fear of discrimination.”
Around the world, we support LGBTQ+ children who speak out against the discrimination, persecution and violence they face. To mark #PrideMonth, we asked LGBTQ+ activists about their hopes for the future. 👇🧵

Utterly horrific. Title 42 and MPP force migrants to take dangerous journeys as they seek safety in the U.S. This tragedy underscores why these polices must end.

All children have the right to live in a world free from violence and fear. But gun violence continues to put children's rights at risk. More must be done to protect kids across America. We're urging Congress to quickly pass the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.
We are deeply saddened by the deadly impact of today’s #earthquake in eastern #Afghanistan. We’re closely monitoring the situation and have teams on standby to deploy if extra support is needed.
🧵@SavetheChildrenn's founder Eglantyne Jebb famously said, "Humanity owes the child the best it has to give." But it's clear that the world is not giving its best. At the@UNN today I urged the humanitarian community to put children at the very heart of humanitarian action.O
