Time: 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Location: Foley Square
Hosts: New Sanctuary Coalition
Lights for Liberty is working with local organizations who have been doing the work around immigrants’ rights and related issues. Our local hosting organizations are working with people who are directly impacted to curate each vigil. Vigils are seen as a nonviolent way to raise awareness of a cause and to motivate change, as well as uniting and supporting those attending the vigil.
Please look for these organizations to post more information about each vigil’s plan and requirements.
A moment of silence will be held at 9 p.m. with candles (if allowed), battery operated candles, flashlights and phones to shine a light on our administrations policies at the border.
