Amnesty International's monthly bulletin focused on detention centers around the world. Amnesty’s main goal was to inform people about how detention centers are a harmful and unsafe form of punishment. People in detention centers are often wrongfully put into the centers and are left without any access to their family’s or a lawyer. People imprisoned are often taken to the center for following their beliefs (religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or economic status). Detention centers have horrible conditions including over crowding, torture, and unfair legal processes. People that get thrown into detention centers are often the cause of immigration into another country. The people fleeing their country are usually leaving worse conditions including natural disasters, improper health/medical care, and overall poor quality of life. A way to improve the situation in these detention centers is to start providing the people with proper and humane treatments. This would include access to health professionals, effective legal practices, and no torture. Detention centers are inhumane and do not help the people within the centers. In addition to the bulletin board we also sent letters to children in detention centers in the south by the borders. These letters were made to inspire the children to keep holding onto hope. Each letter of hope has a message to the children to keep fighting.
