Events at Neighborhood Unitarian Church
A legislated, quota-based penal system has led to the unfair and inhumane detention of innocent men, women and children. A free public forum spreads awareness of where public tax dollars go. Speakers will address wrongful detention, deplorable conditions and the pervasive use of solitary confinement as well as the upcoming $45 million expansion of the Adelanto Detention Center. Speakers include the Arzate/Bravo family of imprisoned asylum-seeker Orlando Arzate and his nephew Luis Bravo suffered a very public arrest at the hands of ICE; Christina Fialho, Attorney and Executive Director of CIVIC, an immigration activist group; Sarah Shourd, author and prisoner rights advocate and one of three co-authors of “A Sliver of Light: Three Americans Imprisoned in Iran.”
