As new reports emerge about the conditions for children in immigrant detention centers, The Riveter will use its platform to raise awareness and organize support for families seeking asylum at the border.
The Riveter Stands with Immigrant Children and Families, in doing so we're leading an evening of conversation around how we can best support immigrants in Dallas. Join us as we hear from Jessica Vittorio about her recent experience litigating cases at the border.
