Friends of Miami-Dade Detainees
Friends of Miami-Dade Detainees is sponsored by the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Miami in partnership with Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC). We are working on starting the first immigration detention visitation program in Florida at the Krome Service Processing Center in Miami.
We have made over 600 visits to talk to the men one-to-one. Volunteers also staff a hotline available free to the men in detention.
Friends of Miami-Dade Detainees organized regular visits from University of Miami students to people held in the Krome Detention Center. Conversations during these visits informed the Florida chapter of States of Incarceration.
