Detention Watch Network (DWN) members are organizing around the country to demand an end to immigration detention through local and national campaigns. DWN works to support member campaigns through information sharing, strategy development, public education and communications.

Support DWN member campaigns or consider organizing an event in your community to raise awareness about the inhumane and unjust immigration detention system.

    These events are a great way to educate your community on immigration detention while recruiting people to become more active on the issue.
  • Organize a Rally, March or Vigil
