How to Restore the Values of America -- Larry Campbell, Part 2 by Jahan Sharif

"There comes a time when silence is betrayal." -- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Each day we allow injustices to go unacknowledged and unaddressed, is another day that we violate the morality of humanity.

In this, Part 2, of my interview with Larry Campbell, he explains how he built Corners Outreach into a million-dollar vehicle that fights against exploitation, empowers us with the tools to make a difference, and then challenges us to put that awareness into action.

What it is like to be detained by ICE -- Larry Campbell, Executive Director of Corners Outreach by Jahan Sharif

With the immigration debate dominating domestic politics and President Trump calling for raids on undocumented persons, I wanted to know what life is like for those who stand to be directly affected by immigration policy.

Originally, we'd planned to have an undocumented person share their story, but out of an abundance of caution, we decided that Larry Campbell, the Executive Director of Corners Outreach, would speak on their behalf. Larry has served his neighbors in Atlanta for decades, and for the last five years he has dedicated his life to fighting the injustices suffered by this vulnerable community.

He shares stories from some of the lives that have touched him, takes us inside an ICE detention center, and gives us many reasons for hope.

This is part 1 of our two part interview.
