visit our friends in detention
As a co-founding member of Georgia Detention Watch, Alterna organizes humanitarian visitations to the men detained at the Stewart Detention Center in rural southwest Georgia.
The Stewart Detention Center, owned and operated by Corrections Corporation of America, is the largest immigrant detention center in the United States. Alterna and Georgia Detention Watch have long monitored this facility, documenting alleged violations of human rights and detention standards and organizing vigils remembering the detainees trapped there and Roberto Martinez Medina who died while detained there.
If you have a group that would like to visit detainees at the Stewart Detention Center, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
