Teachers Against Child Detention: Teach-In for Freedom

  • San Jacinto Plaza 114 West Mills Avenue El Paso, TX, 79901 United States (map)

We are working to draw attention to what has been called a “moral disaster”

On Sunday, February 17, 2019, TACD will stage a live-streamed “Teach-In For Freedom” on San Jacinto Plaza in El Paso, Texas to be broadcast across Facebook, YouTube and other media outlets starting at 9.00 AM.

We call on the U.S. government to end the detention and criminalization of immigrant children and their families. We call, instead, for the government to protect immigrant children, in strict compliance with the Flores decree, without exception for “emergencies” that have allowed children to be incarcerated for extended periods. We demand that immigrant children in U.S. custody (1) never be separated from their families, (2) be held in the least restrictive settings possible, and not in large institutional facilities like Tornillo and Homestead, and (3) be released to their sponsors within 20 days as required by Flores.
