On Friday, July 12th we will be having a very special event:
Lights for Liberty: A Candlelight Vigil to End Human Detention Camps
Vigils are taking place throughout the nation will bring thousands of Americans from numerous organizations and all walks of life to detention camps across the country, into the streets and into our own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by refugees.
Please join us at the Ashland Plaza just before 9:00 p.m. for this extremely important event.
Bring your families, friends, neighbors, signs, posters, candles, flashlights, etc. as we send a message that we abhor the inhumane treatment being perpetrated in this, our land of the free.
“Now is the time for every person to stand up and say, ‘We will not accept this!’ No more hesitating. No more denial. No more fear. We need to be bold, and loud, and unrelenting. That’s the only way we can stop this,” said Kristin Mink, activist and organizer.
“The Trump administration’s immigration policies and detention camps meet the United Nations’ definition of genocide and crimes against humanity,” said Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin, lawyer, activist and organizer. “Congress is refusing to stop the president and his policies. We cannot allow these atrocities to be perpetrated in our name.”
