On June 27, 2017, Laura Redman, HJ Director, joined Human Rights Watch and CIVIC in a national webinar Fighting for Dignity: Advocacy Tools for Improving Medical Care for Immigrants in Detention.  Laura discussed how NYLPI’s work and recent report documented how deficient medical care leads to severe pain, illness, and sometimes needless death for immigrants in detention and creative efforts to advocate on an individual and local level that have had a real and promising impact. The webinar shared stories and provided tips on how to replicate these efforts around the country.
