Speak Out Against Forced Sterilizations in ICE Detention Centers

33 so far! Let’s get to 50 signers!

The allegations about possible forced sterilizations taking place in the detention center in Ocilla, Georgia are profoundly disturbing and unacceptable. I demand that you take this seriously and investigate this to the full extent possible. If these allegations are true, the facility should be shut down, and everyone involved must be held accountable. Additionally, it is really important that you publicly decry such a hateful and despicable practice. Forced sterilization is something that Nazis do; we’re failing the test which simply asks, “Would you have spoken out against the Holocaust?” I cannot believe I have to ask you to speak out actively against eugenics in the United States, but here we are. We’re heading down a darker path than I ever thought possible. Do not be on the wrong side of history.
