Letters to a Detainee

Want to read first hand accounts of people's experience in immigration detention centers in Florence and Eloy, Arizona?

An excellent new publication has compiled interviews, art, and writing from men and women who have been detained in Arizona.

The publication is part of a larger project called: Letters to a Detainee: Immigration Detention in Arizona. The multimedia project has raised awareness about the effects of detention on individuals, families and communities. The project was coordinated by Laura Belous and Melissa Mundt. It was funded by the Arizona Humanities Council.

This publication is excellent.

You can download a pdf version from the project's website:
