This day-long event is the culmination of Human Rights First’s Dialogues on Detention series held in fall 2012 in partnership with The University of Texas at Austin’s Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, University of California Irvine School of Law, Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law, and Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. The Dialogues have convened experts, academics, policymakers, practitioners, advocates, and the private bar working in the immigration detention and corrections/criminal justice fields, as well as formerly detained individuals, with an aim to help shift the national conversation on immigration detention, build alliances between stakeholders in both fields, and lay the groundwork for future improvements in policy and practice. The DC Dialogue is designed to bring lessons learned across the country to Washington.

We look forward to seeing you on April 8!
