Otay Allies Volunteer Form
Thank you for your interest. We are a grassroots community group based in San Diego that seeks to support refugees imprisoned at Otay Mesa Detention Center by providing refugees basic human contact (letter writing), the ability to call their friends and families (commissary account donations), access to information about their rights, and the opportunity to tell their stories. Filling out this form is the first step towards being paired with a refugee whom you can support through a weekly letter and monthly contribution for phone calls and human necessities. After you complete this form, please complete our confidentiality training and connect you with a detained refugee.
