WOLA works to ensure that policymakers recognize the need to address the immediate humanitarian crisis as well as the need to invest in programs to reduce the root causes of the problem. WOLA plays a vital role by presenting expert analysis of the challenges people face in their countries and making recommendations about what the U.S. and others can do
about it. We must make sure this unprecedented amount of assistance truly tackles the root causes of this mass displacement of children—particularly by creating safer communities and greater economic opportunity.

WOLA needs your support in order to advocate for policies that will create safer communities throughout Central America. Please consider making a gift to help make this advocacy happen. Donate today!
