On Monday, September 3, JCIRA members and supporters will stand witness outside the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, in support of the detainees and their visiting families.
We will meet at the Park and Ride near Safeway at 11 AM, conduct our witness from approximately 1-4 PM and return to Port Townsend at about 6 PM.
Join us to make signs at QUUF on Sunday, Sept. 2 at 11:15 AM. We’ll provide materials and ideas – or bring your own.
For further details contact Linda at JCIRAwa@gmail.com
