|Dignity Not Detention campaign launch in San Antonio
Thursday, February 25, 12:00-1:00 pm, San Antonio ICE offices
Grassroots Leadership will join with members of the faith community, former detainees, and human rights organizers from across Texas in a protest, press conference, and letter delivery to the ICE offices in San Antonio. Protesters will call on ICE to make good on its commitment to fix the immigrant detention system by closing Tent City and Port Isabel and implementing alternatives to detention policies. We will also deliver a petition signed by immigrant detainees across Texas. The ICE offices are located at 8940 Fourwinds Dr., San Antonio, TX, 78239. For information on an Austin caravan, please email Bob Libal or call (512) 499-8111.
