#ShutDownAdelanto Week of Action!

adelantoJoin the Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice, Culture Strike, and CIVIC for our week of action to denounce the mistreatment and abuse of detainees at the Adelanto Detention Facility! This year commemorates 5 years of inadequate healthcare, overuse of solitary confinement, mistreatment, deaths of detainees, and the immoral practice of profiting from detaining immigrants.

It is time for our community to rise and show support for those currently detained in the facility and those that have been deported in this fusion of activism, art, and advocacy to demand that THE ADELANTO DETENTION FACILITY SHUTS DOWN!
