They are going to talk with friends, family, neighbors, and community members about how the government is moving away from American ideals of upholding human rights and civil liberties. They are going to talk about how Department of Homeland Security (DHS) policies impact their communities and what their communities can do to protect the people they care most about. Then, they are going to do something about it.In our area, One America will be meeting at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma Washington. More details below.

Northwest Detention Center * 1623 East J Street
Hosted by One America, demonstrators will be standing in solidarity with detainees and families and friends of those impacted by inhumane conditions in the local immigration detention center. The goal is to provide both logistical support to loved ones about the detention process and finding an attorney to represent them as well as moral support for the plight faced by these families.
