1 de Noviembre, 2010- Personas de fe y activistas pro-inmigrante se juntaron enfrente del centro de detención de GEO para exigir un fin a las cárceles y los centros de detención privados después del reportaje de investigación de NPR que conto como las industrias de cárceles privados presionan a favor de legislación estatal que asegura mas encarcelación de ciudadanos e inmigrantes y más ganancias para las industria.

Advocates Gather in Song and Solidarity in front of the GEO Immigration Detention Center in Aurora, Colorado
By Jennifer Piper, AFSC Colorado Interfaith Organizing Director for Immigrant Rights
More than 60 faith and community members joined together on Labor Day, demonstrating their resistance to the continued detention of workers, mothers and fathers. For over a year, faith and community groups have taken turns hosting the monthly vigil, sponsored by AFSC, creating a community of immigrants and citizens opposed to immigrant detention.
A group of 10 bilingual immigrants began offering emotional support this week to undocumented aliens in Colorado detention centers with a program that helps them get in touch with their families. The program, known as Colorado AID, is a project of the Denver office of the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker organization.
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
