On May 3, 2010, about 250 immigrant rights advocates marked their first year of witness at the GEO Detention Center for immigrants in Aurora, Colorado. Participating groups included the 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, and Fort Collins.
We’ve been working to organize workshops for immigrant communities in Charlotte and Greensboro about “knowing your rights” in case of immigration raids. We have expanded to include information about Powers of Attorney so that our undocumented neighbors can prepare their affairs in case of detention or deportation. Below are some of the resources we've used in our workshops.
