Solitary Confinement is Torture.
Here is the latest about the health of one of the undocumented youth who was part of the action of the border: Maria Peniche is on suicide watch in solitary confinement. What happened to her is exactly what experts say happens to people in solitary.
You can help get the word out. Bring the Dreamers home. No more solitary confinement, for anyone.
Please follow the Facebook page of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance for an upcoming live recording of Maria.
If you are an artist, considering making an art piece in solidarity with the Dream 9
Today, the National Education Association is launching their campaign “Dreamers Welcome.” They’re asking community to share my newest Butter Fly design.
The inspiration for this design was to stand in solidarity with dreamers and for them to know that there is a community of people who care and stand with them. Their story is a beautiful and positive story, of resiliency of the human spirit.
And starting today, NEA is hosting a national call-in day (1-866-632-6057) to encourage educators and others to call their senators and encourage them to support DREAMers, their families and the comprehensive bill. Please share this image with all of your friends and family !!
