Connect With A Pen Pal In Detention
Immigration detention is a lonely experience.
A kind word in the form of a letter can make a huge difference.
Writing letters is an easy and meaningful way to be a compassionate presence to those in immigration detention – to remind them that they are not alone or forgotten.
At first, writing to a stranger can feel intimidating.
What do I say? How do I introduce myself? What if they don’t respond?
