Rodrigo Torres is a volunteer with CIVIC an organization whose volunteers visit and monitor 43 facilities (including the West County Detention Center in Richmond, California) and run the largest national hotline for detained immigrants. CIVIC is devoted to abolishing U.S. immigration detention, while ending the isolation of people suffering in this profit-driven system. Recently, CIVIC was barred by the Contra Costa sheriff from visiting immigrants at West County because their work has exposed terrible conditions there. CIVIC is fighting back and Rodrigo will inform us on CIVIC's work, the conditions in the detention camps, how CIVIC plans to fight back against being barred from West County, and how others can help.
