Returning to the Effort

First, thank you to everyone who read and commented on this blog while Amber and I were in Artesia. We truly appreciate your support.

In my last blog post in November, I wrote that I planned to return to help end family detention in Texas in Spring of 2015. I am happy to say that my flight has been booked and I am officially scheduled to volunteer at the new detention center in Dilley, TX from May 3-9. I am excited to once again contribute to the fight against family detention. Like in Artesia, I hope to blog while in Dilley to shed light on what is happening at this new center, and the experiences of the women and children being held there.

But… I need your help! I am seeking donations to cover travel expenses including flight, room and board. To read more about Dilley or to donate, please visit http://www.gofundme.com/q63angg. Please also share this with anyone who may be interested in donating. Thank you!!!
