FRIENDS OF MIAMI-DADE DETAINEES
The Friends of Miami-Dade Detainees (FOMDD) is a visitation program for the Krome Detention Center led by the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Miami and supported by FLIC and Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC).

Through this initiative, FOMDD hopes to:
- Connect with the more than 600 individuals who are mandatorily detained and confined away from their families and communities and give them a space for human and compassionate contact
- Create opportunities for accountability through civilian oversight in a facility that is owned, operated and audited by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
- Launch a community-led and sustained hotline that will provide people in immigration detention at Krome with a free telephone connection to a community of support on the outside
