Film unmasks the inhumanity of family detention

June 20, 2015

The Office of the General Assembly (OGA) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) joined denomination and community partners recently to spotlight the inhumanity of detention centers in South Texas housing Central American mothers and their children. Persons of faith and conscience are organizing to provide outreach to these families and to end this disturbing practice by the United States government. The film “Families Held Captive,” produced by OGA, examines these prison-like facilities and the lives most affected. Watch, share, and learn more about how you can #EndFamilyDetention.
