No Detention in A Sanctuary City! Philadelphia courts have ruled in favor of a child detention center opening in North Philly. Join us in signing this petition and let VisionQuest know that they are not welcome in Philly!
The profit-driven detention company, VisionQuest, announced plans to detain 60 Central American youth within Philadelphia. With the backing of the courts, an immigrant youth detention center could quickly become a reality in our Sanctuary City. But the fight is not over!
Questioned about such abuses in a public meeting, the company dismissed them as past events and argued that the new immigrant youth jail would “revitalize” the neighborhood and “create jobs” for the community — absurd justifications that community members rejected. These community members prevailed when city officials rejected a new detention-for-profit scheme in our city. Help us keep winning this fight by signing this petition and sharing it with your networks.
