Please join Texans United for Families and Grassroots Leadership for a fundraising party to help us raise money for the December 8th caravan for an action at the Polk County Detention Center in Livingston, Texas.
TUFF and Grassroots Leadership are organizing a vigil and protest outside of the IAH Polk Secure Adult Detention Center calling for it to be closed immediately. This event is part of the Expose and Close campaign, a nation effort highlighting ten of the worst ICE detention facilities in the nation and demanding the closure. We recently released a report detailing the appalling conditions that immigrant men detained at Polk endure, available at detentionwatchnetwork.org/ExposeAndClose.
On December 8th, we will take a charter bus from Austin to Livingston to protest outside of the facility and return that evening. We are also encouraging allies in Houston to join us at the facility. To sign up to get on the bus, please register at http://www.grassrootsleadership.org/get-on-the-bus.html. For more information on the caravan or the party, please contact blibal at greassrootsleadership dot org If you'd like to make a donation to the caravan, you can do so online.
