Description:

Recent detainee hunger strikes and protests have highlighted the poor conditions that civil immigrant detainees are subjected to in our Commonwealth. Attendees will hear about a new statewide project being launched by Prisoners’ Legal Services and the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, which will focus on advocating on behalf of immigrants civilly detained in the four Massachusetts detention centers. The project aims to improve conditions in detention facilities and address issues of discrimination, placement in solitary confinement, language access needs, medical and mental health care, food and sanitation, and access to programming and services. The speakers will also cover volunteer opportunities available with the project.

Speakers:

Elizabeth Matos,
Prisoners' Legal Services

Mario Paredes, Massachusetts Law Reform Institute
