Breakthrough uses videos, video-games, and other multimedia approaches in an attempt to bring immigrtaion and related human rights abuses to national attention. Breakthrough's latest campaign is on inhumane immigrant detention centers: Homeland Guantanamos (www.homelandgitmo.com). On the site, you are the journalist and your editor assigns you to go undercover in an immigrant detention center to find out what happened to Boubacar Bah who died in detention in 2007, while exposing inhumane detention conditions. There's a tribute wall dedicated to the 87 people that have died in detention, video stories with people that have been detained along with an FAQ and Discussion Guide. The link above will take you to video stories that are in the site from people that were detained, audio clips, etc.
