In Three Words

Do you want to take a moment to think about what immigration detention means to you? Can you describe, in just three words, your emotions, thoughts and feelings? Share it on Twitter with a hashtag #Unlocked19. Here’s one we made earlier.


If your group or organisation wants to know more about immigration detention and what action they can take to challenge it, we can signpost you to some of the Detention Forum member organisations who might be able to give you help getting started. Contact us.
