DETAINED: TAKING ACTION FOR IMMIGRANTS
MAY 19, 2019
An afternoon of learning and taking action on the rising number of immigrant detention centers in the U.S. We will hear a first-hand account of living in detention from Edafe Okporo, and take advocacy steps with leading activist Kennji Kizuka. The event primarily contains adult content but will also include family-friendly letter-writing to refugees.
WE MET NILDA
Nilda was sexually assaulted, held hostage, and threatened with death before she came to the U.S., where she was detained and separated from her son. We’ll meet Nilda, learn about her journey (a story that garnered 8 million YouTube views) and what we can do to help.
