The Inland Empire Immigrant Youth Collective, Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice, CIVIC, Revolve Impact, The California Wellness Foundation and The California Endowment present #SchoolsNotPrisons Adelanto.
On Friday, October 20, 2017, the #SchoolsNotPrisons arts and music festival will travel to Adelanto. About an hour and a half northeast of Los Angeles, Adelanto is home to California’s largest immigrant prison, where more than 1,600 people are incarcerated.
Artists and advocates will join forces to raise awareness about the immigrant prison system, share the stories of people harmed by inhumane prison conditions, and advocate for prisons to be replaced by community-based solutions that allow people to remain healthy and safe, with their families, while awaiting the outcome of their immigration cases.
All-Ages Event: This is an all-ages peaceful community event. It is a tobacco-free, alcohol and drug-free zone.
