Description & Schedule 

Leaders across the country are fighting to end the policy and practice of immigration detention. Join us for a conversation with advocates and organizers to learn more about this movement’s strategies. The morning session will focus on the national landscape: today’s detention system, successful efforts against detention from outside of California, and the concerns and risks associated with closing these facilities. The national landscape will provide context for a conversation about the work that is happening here in California.  In the afternoon session, our panel of experts will use a series of case studies to discuss strategies and considerations for fighting detention contracts and facilities in California, as well as share lessons learned and reflections from this work. Attendees will learn and discuss how philanthropy can respond to these developments and strategic funding opportunities.

An agenda and supporting documents will be emailed prior to the meeting.
