Call Your Loved Ones Campaign

Those being unjustly held in immigrant detention are now no longer able to receive visitors

The What

Those being unjustly held in immigrant detention are now no longer able to receive visitors, leaving detainees socially isolated, and in certain circumstances, completely without human interaction for weeks at a time. These prisons are privately run, so those detained there have to pay (sometimes up to $1 per minute!) in order to call their loved ones. Their only source of revenue is working for the private prison system, which only pays them a few dollars a day. In light of this pandemic, we want to ensure all those being detained in Georgia can call their families during this time

The How

We need you (and anyone else you know) to help us raise funds to contribute to their commissary accounts (these are accounts they have access to that can be used to fund their phone calls to loved ones). We know times are tight, but a dollar or two could allow someone in detention to hear their families voices for a few minutes.  

If you would like to contribute Venmo @eudoraolsen and we will ensure all donations we receive get placed in the commissary accounts of people in detention who need it.

If you would like to donate via another modality please email hgoodal@emory.edu
