The ACA is the largest accreditor of prisons, ICE facilities, jails, and concentration camp administrators - their annual conference is the belly of the beast where thousands of guards, wardens, ICE/Border Patrol, jailers, weapons companies, prison profiteers and more gather to make connections and build their bonds.
We recognize such accrediting bodies lend legitimacy to unconscionable abuses such as institutionalized sexual violence, toxic water, extreme heat and cold, and much more. Wherever the ACA goes, abolitionists will gather to confront and hold them accountable for their role in holding up the atrocities of caging our fellow human beings.Read More
We invite you to join Driving Family Forward’s Lobbying Day, on Tuesday July 30th from 11am-12:30. We will be lobbying state legislators to support An Act Relative to Work and Family Mobility. This bill would enable all qualified state residents to apply for a standard Massachusettsdriver’s license, regardless of immigration status, while keeping our Commonwealth in full compliance with REAL ID requirements.Read More
Learn about national and local issues facing immigrant communities, including the Safe Communities Act, Temporary Protected Status, "Driver's License Bills," and more. Discover how to contact your legislators, host phone-banking parties, and hold community events in your town.
We will hear testimonies from immigrants, educators, health worker testimonies. We'll also have mini teach-ins, songs/chants, a reading of the names of immigrants who have died in CBP custody or trying to get to the US, and of course light candles in a show of solidarity with our immigrant brothers and sisters.
