An Opportunity to Make a Difference

Be a Champion for Reform!

Dear Colleague,

In 2010 the government deported close to 400,000 men, women and children, an all-time record-high. These individuals were denied fair and humane treatment because of a system riddled with unjust processes and human rights violations. You can be a champion for immigrants in detention by helping to restore dignity and justice in the immigration detention and deportation system!

Your contribution is essential to sustain and expand the Network’s public education, organizing and advocacy activities, and to support the Dignity not Detention campaign.

This year Network members worked to hold the government accountable on promised detention reforms in the Year One Report Card (PDF), helped immigrant communities build their capacity to respond to the growing threat of enforcement actions, and rallied for Dignity not Detention Days of Action.  Read about DWN’s activism, advocacy and education activities here.

Say YES to dignity today and give a special year-end gift to put an end to the human rights abuses in detention centers, restore due process in the enforcement of immigration laws, and advocate for the implementation of cost saving alternatives.

On behalf of all those who care about the plight of immigrants in detention, thank you for taking the time to help.
