Support for People in Immigration Detention

February 28, 2015

Join us for part 6 of our series: Support from Outside the Walls. Learn how to support and visit people incarcerated in immigration detention facilities and jails.

Saturday, February 28, 12 p.m. - 2 p.m.
1201 Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Oakland

Trainers include:

Anoop Prasad, Staff Attorney, Immigrant Rights Program Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Asian Law Caucus

Christina Mansfield, Co-Executive Director, Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC)

This training series will focus on practical skills development for loved ones, activists, legal workers, and lawyers to understand the nitty gritty methods and best practices for supporting people on the inside.

The NLGSF Chapter's Committee on Police & Prisons is coordinating the training. The committee exists to challenge oppressive practices, policies and laws of law enforcement, prisons and jails used against communities of color, prisoners, and others. It does so by supporting community activists and building member capacity to support and be a part of movements for human rights and civil liberties.
