Generosity Offering in February: CIVIC (Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement)

CIVIC is a national non-profit whose mission is to end the isolation and abuse of people in U.S. immigration detention through visitation, independent monitoring, storytelling, and advocacy. The heart of CIVIC’s work is community-based and volunteer-run immigration detention visitation programs. CIVIC was integral in supporting SOLACE, our Interfaith Detention Center Project, in regaining entry at the Otay Detention Center in 2013 through 2014. To learn more about CIVIC, you can go to www.endisolation.org.
