The all-day conference will trace the path of the unaccompanied children through five parts of their journey: the push factors driving them out of their home countries, the conditions of the detention facilities that the children are held in when they reach the U.S., the legal obstacles they face when they arrive, the unique challenges they face in integrating into U.S. communities, and their fate if deported.  It will also identify resources, current efforts and contacts to aid in this crisis, and suggest effective ways you can help.
