Dorothy Perkins and Shauna Hansen
Advocates for Immigrants in Detention

Dorothy is retired from government service and is currently a member of the Jesuit Volunteer Encorps program working social justice issues.  She began volunteering with AIDNW in 2017 as part of a grad school project and remains committed to supporting the legal immigrants who are released from the NW Detention Center.

Shauna is a stormwater engineer and has worked for the City of Tacoma Environmental Services Department since 2002.  She is the mother of three boys ages 5, 8 and 10, and recently became interested in volunteering for AIDNW when she learned about the Northwest Immigrant Detention Center operating down the street from her office at the Center for Urban Waters.
