This orientation meeting is organized by Friends of Orange County Detainees, an all-volunteer group who visit immigrants confined at the James Musick Facility in Irvine, the Santa Ana Jail, and soon the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange. "Our purpose is humanitarian. Because these people are not part of the criminal justice system, their rights are few. Many detainees have no visitors and are thrilled when we arrive to just talk and listen. We welcome you to come and learn more. We have a special need for Spanish-speaking volunteers."
For more information or to sign up to attend, please email Jan Meslin at email@example.com or call [masked].
We are sponsored by Tapestry Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Mission Viejo and are part of the growing national network of detention visitation programs called CIVIC, Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement.
