Thank you all for Sharing the LOVE last night!

Over 100 hundred people gathered at the Aurora Detention Center last night to make our voices heard…
Love Knows NO Borders, NO Walls!
We sang Volver, Volver and the women & men unjustly detained inside sang back.
You can continue to share the love by making Valentines..

This February CFIR will send each of the 400 immigrant detainees:
One special hand made by YOU Valentine AND a stamped postcard that can be sent to a loved one on Valentine’s day!

Thanks to the beautiful people who made the first 100! We need 300 MORE thoughtfully crafted Valentines!
A great activity for youth groups, book clubs, etc. Let us know if you need crafting supplies, we can share ours!

Please make 5-10 Valentines & send them to the AFSC:
Valentine c/o Jordan T Garcia
901 W. 14th Ave, Suite #7 Denver, CO 80204
Questions? call 303-623-3464
Also, if you are able to contribute funds to help us buy stamps for detainees, that would be great!

You could write:
Dear Valentine, You are not alone. I hold you in my heart, thoughts and prayers. Love knows no borders or walls and together we can share each other’s strength and
courage. I am with you in spirit on this Valentine’s Day.
No estas sol@. Est@s presente en mi corazón, mis pensamientos y mis oraciones. El amor no reconoce fronteras ni muros. Juntos podemos compartir nuestr@ fuerza y valor. Mi espíritu está contigo en este Día de San Valentín.

You could join these groups TONIGHT!
Resist the War on Immigrants - Letter Writing Night for ICE Detainees and Immigrant Rights Political Prisoners
Wednesday February 3rd, 6:30pm-8:00pm
6th Ave. United Church of Christ (6th and Adams) Co-sponsored by El Comite en Defensor del Pueblo and the Denver Anarchist Black Cross
Denver ABC is excited to host its first themed monthly letter writing night side by side with El Comite en Defensor del Pueblo. We are living in a moment of an increasing militarized border, an expanding deportation apparatus of immigrant detention centers and police forces, and a large public segment of fomenting xenophobes. Yet immigrant people, indigenous people who have had the “immigrant” label imposed on them, and their allies are becoming better organized and more militant every day. We are excited to host a night of letter writing to those imprisoned by either being caught within the US’s war on immigration and those fighting back.
Envelopes, prisoner addresses and information, postage, childcare, educational information, and a FREE SPAGHETTI DINNER will all be provided!
