Advocates for Immigrants in Detention NW is a nonprofit charitable organization, formed in 2005, to provide practical help to detainees and their families, as well as raise awareness about the NWDC facility in Tacoma, WA. The Advocates for Immigrants in Detention Northwest (A.I.D. NW) is a collaboration of numerous organizations representing diverse sectors in the Northwest community, including social service agencies, healthcare providers, public schools, immigration attorneys, law enforcement, religious and civic organizations, refugee agencies, colleges and universities, and local and state elected officials, focused on the support of immigrants detained at the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) in Tacoma, Washington. AID NW strives to promote the full integration of all immigrants into a society that is based on equality, understanding, cooperation, and mutual respect among the many diverse communities represented in our region. We seek to develop a network of resources that provide direct services to detained immigrants and their families – during detention and upon release, establish and maintain a community-wide effort to promote awareness about detention and advocate on behalf of NWDC detainees – to build, strengthen and sustain healthy communities.
