Demonstrating outside the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) on Labor Day, JCIRA members and supporters met and talked to many people who had come to visit a family member or friend jailed inside. Their stories were powerful. One woman’s story stands out because she is a fighter – a fighter to save her detainee husband’s life and to improve medical treatment for all detainees - and because she is eager to share details of her struggle.
ShaCorrie Tunkara hopes that everyone will find some way to help.
