Join us to to bear witness to the huge for-profit detention system. In our backyard, Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) is holding approximately 1500 asylum seekers and immigrants in poor conditions. During our vigil, participants will talk with family members who are visiting their detained loved ones, and offer food, water, information about legal aid and a sympathetic ear.
Meet up with Art and Chris at the Port Townsend Park n' Ride next to Safeway at 10:50am to carpool. If you go on your own, meet at the gates of the detention center(1623 East J Street, Tacoma) at 12:30pm. Expect to stay a couple hours.
Please RSVP if possible to Holly at 425-736-2684. If you want to car pool from Port Townsend, please tell Holly if you need a ride or are willing to drive as needed. We also need donations of half sandwiches, individually wrapped, fresh fruit, and baked goods for immigrants' family members. Please coordinate any food donations with Holly. She can also email you directions to NWDC.
