Shut Down Berks

The session in which we speak with David Bennion, a practicing immigration attorney. David founded the Free Migration Project in 2016 to represent immigrant clients in their legal proceedings, provide legal support and training to organizers and advocates, engage in public education and outreach, litigate in the public interest, and advocate for fair and open immigration laws. David coordinates the legal effort for the Shut Down Berks Coaltion’s grassroots campaign to shut down the Family Detention Center in Berks County, PA. David has provided legal support to a number of undocumented activists participating in organized protest. He continues to engage in public deportation defense work and to provide support to grassroots groups through the Free Migration Project.
