Will you help us make California the first state to say NO to private immigration detention?
I’m sure you’ve heard the news that the Department of Justice will be ending its federal use of private prisons, the Department of Homeland Security is thinking of doing the same, and one of the largest prison strikes is underway as we speak.
Enlace is partnering with CIYJA and immigrant rights groups across California in this crucial movement to fight back against mass incarceration and harmful detention practices, and we know that stopping private companies from profiting off of the suffering of our community members is an important step in the right direction. The Dignity Not Detention Act (SB 1289) is on Governor Brown’s desk right now, and he needs to hear that eyes across California and the nation are watching his decision closely.
Sign this petition to the Governor’s office now!
The Governor will be deciding on SB 1289 any day now – he needs to know that we all support dignity, not detention!
