Maps / Info about Concentration Camps in US + clarification of event (from Adrienne Fong)

New info page for event #5. Their posting is not on the list of “Lights for Liberty” events nor on Indybay.

 Am including the resources from 2600 Magazine below!

Concentration Camps in the U.S. (Map)

https://concentrationcamps.us/

2600 Magazine has compiled a full listing of Customs and Border Patrol stations, a number of which are being used to imprison migrants, immigrants, and/or refugees, many of whom are children. In the interests of openness, we are sharing that info here. Please note that not every facility in this list is being used for this purpose, but many existing camps are either at one of these addresses or are being managed there. And the potential for expansion is ever present. This is also only a partial list of the total number of camps, as others are operated by different branches of the government, as well as by private companies. We will be updating it as we receive and compile more data. If you have additional info to add, please write towebmaster@2600.com or visit our SecureDrop page at www.2600.com/securedrop where you can find out how to anonymously submit info to us.

Join us in front of the ICE building for our monthly interfaith vigil! We will nourish our spirit and call for the dismantling of ALL forms of detention and incarceration. Let us turn our collective energy to mend the past, heal the present, and transform the future!

We resist the detention of immigrant children in concentration camps, like what was done in the past to Jewish communities, indigenous communities, and Japanese and Japanese Americans during World War II. We stand with members of the Japanese American community who are calling for the closing of all detention centers: “Never Again Is Now.”

Join us on Friday to hear powerful testimonies from:

** Ben Stern, 97-year-old Holocaust survivor (see below for article in KQED) 
** Chizu Omori, 89-year-old World War II incarceration survivor
