Dancing Away Detention is Grassroots Leadership's annual fundraiser to support the Hutto Visitation Program and Family Detention Programs. We raise funds every year to support volunteer orientations, training community volunteers to break the isolation of detention, monitor the human rights conditions in the facility, and to build advocates for closing the unjust detention systems as a whole.
Since 2010, the Hutto Visitation program, has sent volunteers to the Hutto Detention center in Taylor, Texas to meet and make connections with the immigrant women being detained there. Our visitors play a crucial role in breaking the isolation and serving as human rights observers within the facility. In 2016, we grew to 195 visitors who conducted a over 550 individual visits.
