 Please join us for an urgent National Day of Action for Nan-Hui Jo on June 10th! Now, more than ever, we need your support to demand that ICE release Nan-Hui immediately so she can reunite with her daughter. Despite the fact that Nan-Hui has multiple immigration applications pending, including a VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) petition, ICE is still rushing to deport her. Most recently, ICE filed a motion to CANCEL her immigration court hearing scheduled for August. Why is ICE so intent on deporting a mother away from her daughter? Meanwhile, Nan-Hui continues to pass the weeks in a detention center that does not get any sunlight, where inmates are not even allowed outdoors to exercise.

On June 10th, will your organization join us in taking action for Nan-Hui Jo and her six-year-old girl?

This June marks 11 long months of incarceration and separation for Nan-Hui. On June 10, from 10am – 5pm, help us flood ICE’s inboxes, phone lines, fax machines, and social media to demand Nan-Hui’s immediate release! We ask all of Nan-Hui’s supporters, and all those who believe in a mother’s right to be reunited with her child, to show ICE that there is strong support for Nan-Hui Jo across the country. [Toolkit coming soon with scripts, factsheets, social media images, and sample tweets!]

Mother and child have been torn apart in a legal system that has repeatedly shown itself to be not only completely ignorant of domestic violence, but also racist, anti-immigrant, and hostile to domestic violence survivors. From the prosecution that aggressively criminalized her, to ICE, who continues to keep her locked up, we say NO to the systems that continue to harm survivors and their children!

For questions, or to get involved, please contact

***Please respond by this Friday, June 5th at 5pm.***     Thank you for all your support!
