SEVEN DOORS JOURNAL Issue #2 - AMERICAN GULAG Now available: $10 (free shipping in the US) Visit link in bio to purchase FOLLOW SEVEN DOORS new Instagram account: @immigrationdetention and www.7doors.org American Gulag is the 1st of 3 parts from the project Seven Doors that explore the impact of the use of immigration detention as a central component in US immigration and asylum policy. This work comes as a result of over 2-years of reporting. Over 60 people have contributed their stories to this one issue. From people currently in detention to those who have been released. People who have spent years in detention then were deported to volunteers who visit detention centers to let those inside know there are people in the country who actually do care about them. From separated families to lawyers who tirelessly battle through the Kafkaesque system created by ICE and the US immigration/asylum process. 70% of the print-run of Issue #2 has already been distributed (at no cost) to organizations, activists, academics and lawyers in 10 countries who are working on the issue of immigration detention. This project and Issue #2 is supported with grants from: Oak Foundation, Open Society Foundations & NEO Philanthropy, as well as Blue Earth Alliance. #photography #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #documentaryphotography #slowjournalism #photojournalism #immigrationrights #immigrationdetention #detention #asylumseekers #refugees #migrants #endimmigrationdetention

On view now @sjugallery Merion Hall Gallery Loss Of Hope, Sandra inside the migrant shelter. Casa del Migrante - Juarez, Mexico, 2019 Sandra, 12 years old, is from Guatemala and hopes to be reunited with her father in Alabama. Along with her mom and her two sisters (ages 8 and 4) they were taken into custody by the US Border Patrol and released in Mexico. Sandra says their imprisonment was terrifying. They were mistreated by guards, under fed and held in a detention facility that migrants and asylum seekers call “Hielera,” which means ice box. #ice #immigration #asylumseekers #ifwallscouldspeak #bordercrisis #usmexicoborder #borderartists #socialjustice @sjugallery

bushrafarooqanjum. Islamic Countries’ Inaction during the Syrian Crises
https://medium.co

Islamic Countries’ Inaction during the Syrian Crises https://medium.com/messiah-foundation-international/islamic-countries-inaction-during-the-syrian-crises-e15e5a89facb The image of Aylan Kurdi shocked the world and lead to a global outpouring of support for Syrian refugees on humanitarian grounds. This begs the question: why did so many Syrians have to take such a treacherous journey to Europe when there are well-off Islamic countries so close to them? #YounusAlGohar #Medium #Syria #SyrianRefugees #Aylan #AylanKurdi #Refugees #ISIS #ISIL #Daesh #refugee #refugeecrises #syriancrisis #migrants #migrantcrisis #europe #UnitedKingdom #asylum #asylumseekers #Muslim #Islam #WesternSufism #ALRATV #GoharShahi #YounusAlGohar #GoharShahiTeaches_KhatameNabuwat

terramcdaniel. We met incredible helpers at La Posada Providencia. This lovely little

We met incredible helpers at La Posada Providencia. This lovely little respite center has been around for 30 years with a vision for welcoming travelers like the young expectant couple in Bethlehem 2000 years ago. La Posada is run by kind hearted (and no nonsense!) nuns in their 70s and 80s along with a handful of other staff and volunteers. They are still energetically teaching ESL, singing prayers (and ‘God Bless America’), and offering comfort and practical help to asylum seekers from countries all over the world for anywhere from a few hours to a few years. We met retired schoolteachers like Mike, our knowledgable & tireless guide, who volunteer weekly to help immigrants get the services they need (and people like us learn the conditions they’re forced to navigate). We met lawyers and doctors who are giving their lives to this work. And others who were there for the week like us. Dr. Bronwyn, wearing the blue cap, is a doctor from Portland, Oregon with two kids under 10 at home. Like us, she came because she wanted to help. She spent days handing out creams for rashes and bug bites, cleaning wounds, and handing out antibiotics. (Next to her is a lawyer from Seattle who’d traveled with her mother who is a judge in Alaska). I don’t know about you but sometimes it seems we’ve become calloused and insular as a nation. The needs are great. The system is broken. But there are people there who are acting for justice and kindness. I hope you’re encouraged. I hope you’re empowered. I’ll be back on Monday with some ways you can get involved. #courtsandports #courts&ports #immigration #asylumseekers #lovingneighbors #welcomingstrangers #volunteers #workingwithimmigrantfamilies

... Margaret Mead film festival at AMNH! Fellow Barnard alum film festival featuring anthropological documentaries including the one we saw: border south ... about the resiliency and passage of Central American migrants. Visited a dear friends grandmother who is also a Barnard alum and talked about interviewing Margaret Mead! On the border south website they will be posting how you can help and I’ll reiterate what they said ... donate donate donate to orgs at the border like IRC and the one mentioned: al otro lado. Not only has this administration decreased refugees entering to 18k, they are also processing asylum seekers in Mexico which is illegal and the Mexican government is also not letting caravans through - there are countless kidnappings happening because of this. Ack so much! I thought about all the hopeful, tired faces I saw at the border in Arizona and hope the best for them and their families - they at least made it over. I remembered the man that cried as we left him at the bus station because he made it he was there with his two daughters and wife were finally free, ticket in hand (his wife poked fun at him while he teared up, I remember trying to lift the bag he brought with him off the van and almost fell over and they all laughed) and the little girl I spent hours with at the airport and in the shelter who her dad told me had cried the whole journey (and the two days they spent in what they called jail sleeping on the floor with no food -detention facility) and finally was playful and smiling and seemed joyful. Sending them all lots of ❤️ we have to do better!! #films #autogramtags #filmcommunity #filmphotography #cinema #filmforever #filmlover #lovefilm #filmlife #border #hill #town #margaretmead #filmfestival #filmfestivals #indiefilm #shortfilm #indiefilmmaking #featurefilm #indiefilmmaker #filmpremiere #amnh #asylumseekers #asylumseekerswelcome #bordersouthfilm

So glad you were able to find this place from Charles, a landlord I found for clients of @cwsjerseycity nearly two years ago @jas_925 🙌🏽 I chatted with CK a little while ago. And...you’re very welcome! 😉 I’ll never forget the trouble your clients on Grant Ave had in the apartment CWS put them in originally, before they moved to Forrest: three separate leaks, rats, bedbugs. And then the place burned down!! Anyhow, I brought these new guys another sofa that converts to a bed, three dressers, a night table, three lamps, blankets, coats, and a nice chair. . . . . . . . #ImmigrationCrisis #ImmigrantLivesMatter #ImmigrantsMakeAmericaGreat #closethecamps @never_again_action @americanfriendsservice #neveragain #neveragainisnow #welcomerefugees #asylum #asylumseekers #istandwithrefugees #refugeestories #everydayrefugees @hiasrefugees @theirc @catholiccharitiesny @cws_global @cwsgso @lirsorg . . . #refugeeswelcome #asylumseekerswelcome #asylumseekers #welcomerefugees #standwithrefugees #everydayrefugees #refugeechildren #refugeecrisis #syrianrefugees #refugeestories #jerseycity #jerseycitynj #newjersey #asylees #asyleeswelcome #backtoschool #refugeechildren #refugeeyouth #refugeekids #supportrefugees #syrianrefugee #refugee #refugeestories #refugeechildren #everydayrefugees @cemadsencws where’s my commission?? 🤣

quiroga_law. Los agentes deben esperar a que la persona abandone su hogar de forma

Los agentes deben esperar a que la persona abandone su hogar de forma voluntaria para arrestarla, intentarán confirmar la identidad de la persona, lo cual puede ser difícil si esta no responde a las preguntas. Pero incluso si no se puede verificar su identidad, los agentes de todos modos pueden arrestarlos. Después se les lleva a una oficina local de ICE para procesarlas. Los agentes pueden demorar hasta cinco horas en el papeleo y en encontrar espacio en un centro de detención. Si tienes preguntas o dudas sobre este tema, ¡Escríbenos! ✍👇🤓 . . . . . #AbogadoQuiroga #QuirogaLawOffice #AbogadosdeInmigración #Inmigrantes #Oficinadeabogados #keepfamiliestogether #immigrationlaw #immigratiolawfirm #spokanewashington #familybasedpetition #citizenship #wefightforyou #humanrights #inmigracian #visa #attorneylife #attorneyatlaw #abogada #familymigration #partnervisa #vegaslaw #asylumseekers #justice #reform #undocumentedandunafraid #sueñoamericano #visausa #americancitizenship

mafa_au. There are less than 3 months of this decade left so we are showcasing

There are less than 3 months of this decade left so we are showcasing some of the highlights of our work this year championing asylum seekers’ rights; making art for change and facilitating community events & workshops to celebrate diversity, inspiring hope. Here are a few images from HOPEFREEDOM opening night @trocaderoartspace for @humanrightsfest. The space was vibrant with art by so many asylum seeker & supportive artists such as @nasir.moradi.1 @zohreh_kia @ponceadelph & many more tagged in the image. Opening night performances included dance by @leilaboos, music by @cclhy and speeches by Tri and Margaret. Acknowledgment of country was done in ancestral languages of the artists & it was an inspiring night of art exploring the themes of hope & freedom. Thank you @trocaderoartspace & @humanrightsfest for hosting #art #asylumseekers #humanrights #film #artforchange #compassion #kidsoffnauru #mafa

bloodygoodperiod. Happy bleeding #nationalperiodday to all our menstrual allies in the U

Happy bleeding #nationalperiodday to all our menstrual allies in the US, where they’re marking this day for the v first time to highlight the issues and consequences of period poverty, and a society where menstrual equity is far from the bloody norm. Thanks @thredmag for summarising what it’s all about 👇 Posted @withrepost@thredmag Today the US is celebrating the first ever Period Day to raise awareness of period poverty. Having the resources to manage your monthly period should be a human right. But, currently, millions of women and girls around the world living below the poverty are having to choose between the ability to eat, and the ability to buy sanitary products. In the UK, one in ten girls report having to miss school, and the education they're entitled to, due to the cost of sanitary products. Every women should be able to manage her period, an unavoidable reality of her life, with dignity and humanity. This is a crisis of accessibility that government's have a duty to address. Today, there’s a new generation of young human rights advocates who are thrusting the issue of period poverty into the limelight. With Gen Zers starting the Free Period movement, the Bloody Good Period organization, and the PERIOD initiative, this generation have ignited a movement of lobbying and campaigning that must be continued until complete public health equality has been achieved. #FreePeriod #PeriodPoverty #socialactivism

A special moment while volunteering my digital marketing services for @tamilfeasts was introducing them to @thedesignfiles. This lead to a month-long feature of Tamil Feasts delicious recipes in the popular Australian design and culture blog. These stunning photographs by @caitlinmillsphotography capture just how mouth-watering their food really is, and I was proud to have even the smallest part in their work being shared on blog as gorgeous as TDF 💫 #tamilfeasts #asylumseekers #morethanjustameal #seekingasylumisnotacrime #thedesignfiles #tdffood #seekingasylumisahumanright #contentcreation #contentmarketing #melbournecreative #melbournefreelancer #melbournemarketing #melbournetodo

A recent increase in the number of Mexican fam

#Repost @washingtonpost A recent increase in the number of Mexican families and #asylumseekers trying to cross into the #UnitedStates has raised fears of a new border crisis. #Mexico surpassed #Guatemala and #Honduras in August to again become the single-largest source of unauthorized migration to the United States, administration officials who provided data on the Mexican migrants told The Post. In recent weeks, thousands of Mexican adults and children have been camping out in queues at U.S. border crossings, sleeping in tents while awaiting a chance to apply for safe refuge. Most concerning to U.S. authorities is the percentage of Mexicans declaring a fear of persecution or harm, a claim that typically prevents their rapid deportation. Neither the government of Mexico nor the Trump administration has publicly acknowledged the sudden change. Read more by clicking the link in our bio.
