ICE Oversight Hearings, Thursday, September 26, 2019

There are two hearings happening on the topic of ICE detention, one with government witnesses and one with witnesses themselves impacted by detention. This is a great opportunity for us to make a lot of noise about the abuses and impunity in ICE detention. On the day of the hearings, we are encouraging everyone to share stories about individuals and families who've suffered because of detention, and provide solutions and alternatives to mass incarceration. 

You can help by sharing on social media. Take a look for sample tweets, suggested Facebook posts and images that can be shared across platforms.
