TBA
Elizabeth Murray (elizabeth.a.murray@duke.edu)

Manos Unidas, a student group at Duke Divinity School, will hold a lunch discussion about the reality of detention centers and the immigration system in the United States. The speaker at the event, "Detention Centers and Our Faith," will be Viridiana Martinez of the NC DREAM Team, an organization of undocumented immigrant youth and allies dedicated to creating a sustainable, community-led immigrant rights movement in North Carolina.

Martinez purposely got detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, infiltrated a detention center, and started to organize immigrants who were believed to have been wrongfully detained.
