DC Detention Network Training
Monday, June 10, 2019 – SWBCDC Civil Rights/Immigration Committee event –DC Detention Network Training at the Arbutus Public Library, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. On any given night, about 1,000 (or more) people are held in immigration detention in at least five detention facilities in Maryland and Virginia, incarcerated in actual or virtual jails solely because they have been accused of or determined to be in the U.S. without authorization. The DC Detention Visitation Network seeks to lessen their isolation and vulnerability by providing friendship and support through in-person visits and letters. Join us at an informational and volunteer training session to learn more about the immigration detention system and what you can do to help people.
