Immigrant Detention in the U.S.

Program
Amnesty International

Tufts Amnesty International will be convening a panel of experts to discuss the human rights violations occurring within American immigration detention facilities. While the news cycle periodically includes some of the most egregious violations occurring in detention, basic, sustained human rights violations occur continuously in these facilities without eliciting widespread public outcry. By bringing in a variety of perspectives to speak on this overlooked issue, Amnesty hopes to spark a conversation on Tufts campus about the necessity of continued activism focused on improving immigration detention standards.
