Detention Watch Network conference

Our Community Organizer Lauren Quijano will be speaking at the Detention Watch Network’s 12th National Member Conference: Fighting for Dignity, Justice and Liberation, taking place in Denver, Colorado. In the workshop “Strategies to Support Medical Care and Health in Detention”, Lauren is presenting on behalf of NYLPI. Joining is a leading panel of speakers including Dr. Chanelle Diaz from our Medical Provider Network, Liz Jordan at Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center and Clara Long with Human Rights Watch. Advocates are sharing their experiences and perspectives on the lack of medical care and mental health access in detention, inadequate services, and the dangerous and deadly impacts upon those detained. Presenters are also discussing the mechanisms to hold ICE accountable and models of community-driven healthcare, training, organizing and advocacy efforts to effect change.
