Programs

Conversations with Friends visits, writes cards and letters to, and provides safe release and accompaniment to people detained in immigration custody.


Visitors meet with people detained in county jails in Minnesota by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and awaiting hearings or facing deportation. After the visit, they write thank you cards to those with whom they have visited.

Letter writers correspond with detained individuals. They provide compassion and hope to people held in ICE custody.

Through the Circle of Compassion, individuals, groups, and congregations hold detained individuals in thought and prayer.

Safe Release/Accompaniment volunteers help ensure that people released from detention have a safe place to go in the immediate hours after release.
