Please join us at a rally at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 2, 2015, in Leesport, PA, to protest the imprisonment of children at the Berks family prison. A group of organizations, advocates, and families in Pennsylvania will hold a protest rally on May 2nd at the  Berks Family Detention Center in 1040 Berks Rd, Leesport, PA 19533, near Reading, to raise awareness that the county and federal government are imprisoning children indefinitely and to call for the closure of this family prison.

 

Mothers, fathers, and children--some of whom are toddlers or infants--are imprisoned at the Berks Family Detention Center in 1040 Berks Rd, Leesport, PA 19533. Some have been there for over a year fighting for asylum. They fled persecution in their home countries, including Honduras, El Salvador, and Syria. 

 

For more information, please visit the link to the event on Facebook: EVENT. You can also check out our calendar below. 

 

GRIP's President, Carol Anne Donohoe, and two members, Bridget Cambria & Jackie Kline were part of a panel on Path of The Unaccompanied Minor: The Ethics of Protecting the Rights of Children. You can hear them speak on the subject on the YouTube link
