Schubert Center Statement on Immigrant and Refugee Children and Youth

Date posted: February 20th, 2017

The Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University  is committed to the well-being of all children and young people, and to promoting an equitable environment in which all children can thrive regardless of their country of origin, race, gender, or religion.

Far too often in human history the world has stood by as one group or another was singled out and deprived of their rights, dignity, well-being, and even survival. This has never been a proud moment for humanity. We deplore all policies and actions that threaten the well-being of children and young people, their families and communities and promote injustice and discrimination.

We stand firmly with immigrant and refugee children and their families and communities.
