Immigrant families being separated by ICE and border patrol has been gaining national attention recently, but it is not new. According to federal government data, California imprisons 6,527 in U.S. immigration detention per day. While the ACLU continues the fight in the courts, we also believe it is important to let those jailed in detention centers know that they are not forgotten and that we are fiercely supporting them outside.
Join the ACLU of Northern California from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a postcard writing day where we will write uplifting messages to imprisoned immigrants in Yuba, Mesa Verde, and West County Detention Facility.
Come by for a few minutes or a few hours, but be prepared to write uplifting messages of positivity and love!
ACLU of Northern CA
39 Drumm St
