Public Policy

 

We pursue a robust public policy agenda.  Our parent community has friends on Capitol Hill who are committed to assisting constituents in returning or gaining access to their children and to exerting its oversight role to promote accountability and enhanced response in the U.S. Depts. of State, Justice and Homeland Security--- three key stakeholders in the fight against IPCA.

 

We offer continuous Congressional education, sharing information and resources to aide members of Congress in constituent casework on this issue and in fostering policies that return children and keep them safe at home. 

 

We regularly enage with senior officials in the U.S. Dept. of State Office of Children's Issues and with foreign embassy officials and nongovernmental organizations that have a stake in reuniting families who are victims of IPCA.
