Immigration Detention: Support & Solidarity

Standard

You really can make a difference. And it’s not that hard. Write a letter. Send a card. Go listen to someone who is in immigration detention. It’s like prison there for them. It’s not supposed to be. But it is prison. And it is full of disregard of people’s humanity, dignity, and international human rights.

Learn more about our national immigration detention system, what it is like for the more than 3,000 people who are detained in Florence and Eloy, Arizona, why they are detained, and how you can write, visit, and offer hospitality to the men and women there.

Staff from the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project and members of the Restoration Project at Casa Mariposa will offer trainings in Phoenix and Tucson soon.

Attending the training is the first step to participating in the writing, visitation, and hospitality program that is facilitated by the Restoration Project and the Florence Project. We try to offer these about once every other month in both cities. Bring snacks to share as we learn together and build a strong network of support and solidarity with those inside and outside of immigration detention centers in Arizona.
