Christina Fialho

THE STORY:

"U.S. immigration detention is built upon a system of isolation, not only because we rely on solitary confinement more than any other democratic nation in the world, but also because the system legally deprives immigrants of any connection to the outside world.  Ending isolation starts with ending the practice of solitary confinement, and I'm excited to support 'Opening the Box.'"

Christina Fialho is the Co-Founder/Executive Director of Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC), a national network of community visitation programs working to end the isolation and human rights abuses of people in immigration detention. Christina is a member of the State Bar of California, and has argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and has helped defend immigrants before the U.S. Immigration Courts. She is a 2012 Echoing Green Fellow, a 2013 Rockwood Fellow for a New California, a Steering
Committee Member of the Detention Watch Network, and has a blog on the Huffington Post. Prior to starting CIVIC, Christina co-founded the first immigration detention visitation program in California, researched immigration detention internationally for the Global Detention Project, and worked at Upwardly Global to build more inclusive hiring practices for skilled immigrants in the United States.
