“GIVE ME YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR, YOUR HUDDLED MASSES YEARNING TO BREATHE FREE.” - INSCRIPTION ON THE STATUE OF LIBERTY
On Friday, July 12th, 2019, Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Detention Camps will bring thousands of Americans to detention camps across the country, into the streets, and onto their own front yards to protest the inhumane conditions faced by refugees.
As of today, Lights for Liberty vigils are scheduled in 75 locations around the United States and the world with new locations being added daily.
Beginning at 7:30 p.m. on July 12th, advocates, activists, and impacted persons will speak on the issue of human detention camps in the United States*. At 9 p.m., around the country and around the world, participants will light candles in a silent vigil for all those held in US detention camps to bring light to the darkness of the Trump administration’s horrific policies.
Signs should reflect the inhumane conditions of refugees, detentions, and camps.
