After much discussion and deliberation, Room 209 Gaming is no longer willing to consider the immigrant detention centers in the United States “concentration camps.” During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, rules were instituted to rush people out of centers. And in early 2021, the monstrous family separation policy was revoked.
To be clear: things are still not great, nor are they even good. Immigration policy as a whole in the United States is based on outmoded thinking and generally racist ideology. But the things that angered us most, the things that to our minds made the centers concentration camps – indefinite detention for all and family separation – are thankfully things of the past. For now. Hopefully forever.
For that reason, February 28, 2021 will be the last day that all revenues from sales will be going to the ACLU and RAICES. We will post a final donations announcement in March to calculate the total amount sales generated for those two organizations.
Moving Forward, Room 209 Gaming pledges 10% of all profits to charities of its choice. Beginning in March 2021, to help fight the tide of white nationalism gripping the United States, our charity of choice is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which does a lot of good work fighting extremism and hate.
