As of 2018, there are nearly 50,000 individuals in immigration detention, and our region hosts some of the nations largest facilities. Immigration detention is growing. Unfortunately substandard conditions and violation of rights are frequent and well documented. Those who are detained are isolated and suffering. They need your help as a visitor, pen pal, and an advocate. Please consider volunteering with our organization by contacting us to let us know your interests. Prior to visitation, all new volunteers complete a free training and orientation session. Join us will you.
