Stand with NOW: Demand humane treatment for detained immigrants
Thousands of immigrant families are being inhumanely locked away in horrific and immoral detention facilities – and the women and girls among them are suffering the most. Those fleeing to the U.S. are seeking refuge from sexual violence, assault, and poverty and they deserve a fair and humane immigration process.
This administration’s reprehensible treatment of immigrants must be stopped. NOW demands that detained women and girls have access to vital human needs such as reproductive health care, feminine hygiene products, and mental health care, among other provisions, while in immigration detention prison.
In response, NOW is launching the “Unlock the Future” campaign with a series of rallies and issuing a Bill of Rights for women and girls in detention prisons that will be delivered to top-level government officials. Sign the Bill of Rights today and advocate for reform of the current immigration practices and an end to the current detention prison system.

Call your elected officials: Join NOW in urging members of Congress to support of H.R. 3918/S. 2113, the Stop Cruelty to Migrant Children Act and H.R. 2415, The Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, which would address many of the issues highlighted in our Bill of Rights.
