A Refuge For Detention Center Visitors
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

Reporter Martha Dalton takes us to the remote town of Lumpkin, Georgia. Volunteers are supporting  the family members of detained immigrants. One small act of kindness–creating a place to stay–helps these families visit their loved ones. The volunteers also create an opportunity for people to come and meet those affected by immigration detention policies.
