Advocates Mark One Year of Witness, Resistance at GEO Detention Center:

 Still Standing for Fair, Humane and Just Detention Policies

WHEN:    MONDAY, May 3, 6:00 PM

WHERE:  Geo Detention Center

30th Avenue and Peoria Street
Aurora, CO 80010

WHAT:    Romero Theater Troupe performs “The Impact of Fear” to demonstrate the toll unjust detention and draconian enforcement takes on the families and communities of all Coloradans.

                  Human Chain of Solidarity to encircle the detention center.

                  Prayer and Reflection

WHY:       Every day 1,000 migrants are rounded up and deported; workers are picked up on their jobs; children are literally ripped away from their mothers when agents ransack homes in the middle of the night, and students are detained and deported on their way to school. As ethical and faith communities we call on Congress and President Obama to pass just and humane immigration reform and to end unjust enforcement and division of our communities.

WHO:       American Friends Service Committee, Romero Theater Troupe,  Interfaith Alliance of Colorado, Comunidad Liberación/Liberation Community, 10:30 Catholic Community and faith communities and allies from across Denver, Aurora, Fort Collins.
