Freedom for Immigrants, an Immigration Justice Campaign partner runs a hotline for people in immigration detention as well as family members seeking support for loved ones in detention. Hotline volunteers monitor detention conditions, report abuses, and request support on behalf of callers. Volunteers will sign up for 2-hour shifts that take place Monday – Friday between 6:00 AM and 8:00 PM PST and will respond to hotline calls.
FFI needs people who are able to project their empathy and understanding over the phone in order to calm and reassure people in detention.
Preference is given to volunteers who speak a second language.
For questions contact Rebecca Merton, Director of Visitation and Independent Monitoring, at email@example.com
