Webinar on seeking asylum in the United States coming Tuesday

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s Office of Public Witness will host a webinar to provide timely information about U.S. detention and asylum policies, which have contributed to the deaths of more than 20 people in detention centers and the separation of thousands of families seeking asylum in the U.S.

A captivating talk on captivity

Rocio Calderon kept a Presbyterian Mission Agency delegation spellbound recently just by telling her story. Calderon, who grew up in Bolivia, was locked away in a U.S. detention center for two years even after being economically exploited by an employer. One thing that kept her going, she said, was the compassion of the Casa Mariposa Detention Visitation Program, which encouraged her through cards and visits.
