1. Learn more about ICE detention contracting:
Watch a recording of our August 2015 webinar, "An Advocate's Guide to Understanding ICE Detention Contracts," with presentations from NIJC, Detention Watch Network, and PICO National Network about how to navigate the ICE detention contracts and NIJC's report, why the contracts matter, and how advocates can use them to call for humane reforms of the immigration detention system.
2. Learn More about ICE detention inspections
Watch a recording of our November 2015 webinar, "An Inside Look at the ICE Inspections System,” presented by NIJC, Detention Watch Network, and representatives of the Adelante Alabama Worker Center and National Day Laborer Organizing Network. This webinar provides an orientation to the ICE detention center inspections process, a primer on how to navigate the inspection reports, and an introduction to the Shut Down Etowah campaign with some preliminary discussion about how the inspection documents can be used in local and national advocacy to end abusive immigration detention.
