On Friday, April 21st from noon to 2pm Georgia Detention Watch will be hosting the Concert for the Incarcerated in front of the Atlanta City Detention Center in downtown Atlanta. The event is a collaboration between Georgia Detention Watch and local musicians, poets, artists, and activists who want to see an end to mass incarceration, immigrant detention, and deportation in our city. The Concert for the Incarcerated is part of a city-wide campaign calling for the permanent closure of the Atlanta City Detention Center and the end to all detention agreements between the City of Atlanta and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
This event will highlight the brutality of the US system of mass incarceration with statements from affected communities while affirming the humanity of all by sharing music and art with those who are currently locked up. The Concert for the Incarcerated will be on Friday, April 21st from 12pm to 2pm at 254 Peachtree Street SW. For more information you can call Georgia Detention Watch at 815-222-2886.
