Come to a Solidarity Day. Different activist and grassroots groups from around the Puget Sound and beyond organize solidarity days on Saturdays throughout the month to stand with the detainees and their families and show constant resistance to GEO and ICE. Please come to a solidarity day to learn more about the connections between the organizing happening in the Detention Center and other local organizing efforts. (If you or a group you are involved in are interested in organizing a Solidarity Day please get in touch at NWDCRsolidaritydays (at) gmail (dot) com. Past groups that have participated include: MEChA de UW, La Raza Student Commission, Jewish Voices for Peace, Coalition of Anti-Racist Whites, Advocates for Detainees’ Voices, and more!)
Become a Pen Pal, write folks inside. This letter writing network aims to connect people inside and outside the detention center and broaden the movement to end detention and incarceration. Building letter writing networks chips away at the isolation that people experience in detention, which is valuable in its own right and also perceived support from outside often helps protect individuals from being targeted or harassed. Sign up to write letters to folks inside the Northwest Detention Center.
