tacoma-detention-centerIn July 2008, a group of Seattle University law students published a report alleging human rights abuses at the Tacoma Detention Center.  Yes, this is the detention center in our very own downtown Tacoma.  The report was jointly sponsored by Seattle-based OneAmerica and the Seattle University International  Human Rights Clinic.  One UPS student describes the report as “fascinating.”

Please join Dolen Perkins-Valdez’ English 126 class in Wyatt 206 on Friday, November 21 at 2pm for a discussion featuring two Seattle U Law Students who worked on the report.

Here is what the Seattle Post-Intelligencer had to say about it.
