Protect Migrant Workers and Their Families from Violence

Target: Prayut Chan-o-cha, Prime Minister of Thailand

Goal: Protect the families of migrant workers from violence and abuse.

Families of migrant workers, including young children, are being violently assaulted in Thailand. Families are being abused, mistreated, and denied the basics of survival, such as shelter and healthcare.

More than 60,000 migrant children are at risk. They live in construction site camps. About 90 percent have suffered from physical violence. Just as many have been subjected to illegal child labor.

The United Nations has condemned this violence and maltreatment of vulnerable human beings. Thailand must heed the concerns of the international community. More must be done now to protect migrant workers.


Dear Prime Minister Chan-o-cha,

Tens of thousands of migrant workers in your nation face violence and brutality every single day and nothing is being done to protect them. They are living in inhumane camps, without shelter, healthcare, or any other survival necessity.

Children are most impacted. More than 60,000 children live in this squalor. Nearly all have been forced into illegal child labor. Nearly 90 percent have suffered from physical violence. I demand that you act now to protect these individuals in your country, the ones doing work no one else will do and paying with their lives.
