I.C.E. Detention Center in Berks County Forum

Swarthmore Friends’ Peace and Social Concerns Committee has arranged for Doug Gunn to present this talk. Doug is a retired union cabinetmaker who is active with the Way Forward Community in Chester Count and the Shut Down Berks Coalition. Doug works with other members to organize monthly vigils at the Detention Center, lobby visits to the governor’s office, and other actions designed to advocate for the detainees. The ultimate goal of the Shut Down Berks Coalition is to pressure the governor and the PA Dept. of Human Services to close the facility. Everyone is welcome to attend.
