At the end of the summer, CLINIC partnered with faith and community-based organizations around the country to bring awareness to the growing number of immigrant mothers with infants and young children who are locked in detention centers. Supporters held symbolic baby showers in 10 cities, sent cards denouncing family detention to Jeh Johnson, the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, while using social media to document the campaign and continue to raise awareness.
