The Avelica-Gonzalez’s are a Mexican-American Catholic family from Los Angeles, and the Jamals are a Bangladeshi-American Muslim family from Lawrence, Kansas. Romulo Avelica-Gonzalez and Syed Jamal have each lived in this country for over 25 years, their children are U.S.-born citizens, and both fathers were detained by ICE in the process of taking their daughters to school. Both cases roused allies and entire communities to advocate for their release, showing that political and community pressure works, and works most effectively when both sides advocate together. In a panel with immigration attorneys and activists, these two courageous fathers will inform us about how we can support and advocate for those currently detained or under threat of detention as we work toward a more just American immigration policy.
