Kofi and his daughter during their trip to lobby Congress with AFSC.

In the middle of May 2013, Kofi (whose name was changed for this story) was detained and deported to his home country in Africa. The family he left behind—including a girlfriend and two children—are struggling with his absence, unsure of their future or his fate. Hear the story of this family, and hear how the AFSC community in Newark is speaking out against his deportation and others that tear apart families.
