Our friends at Women for Refugee Women and the End Detention group, the lived experience group of women with experience of immigration detention, are taking action this Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day is a day of love, compassion and care.

Yet for women in detention, it’s another painful reminder that they are ripped apart from their loved ones. Detention is retraumatising and causes lasting damage to women’s mental health.

But huge profits are being made from women’s pain. Mitie and Serco are both involved in running detention centres in the UK and make enormous profits from doing so.

That’s why, this Valentine’s Day, they’re sending anti-Valentine’s Day cards to Mitie and Serco urging them to end their involvement in detention and to #StopProfitingFromOurHeartbreak. Click here to take action!
