Vigil to End Detention Camps
Friday, July 12th, 7pm
Massachusetts State House,
24 Beacon St, Boston, MA 02108
“Inspired by a national call to action, the Boston Lights for Liberty vigil will bring hundreds -- maybe even thousands -- of people together to protest the inhumane conditions faced by refugees. Join us on the steps of the MA State House - or even in front of your own home - to hold a candle and share a moment of silence.
We will hear testimonies from immigrants, educators, health worker testimonies. We'll also have mini teach-ins, songs/chants, a reading of the names of immigrants who have died in CBP custody or trying to get to the US, and of course light candles in a show of solidarity with our immigrant brothers and sisters.
This event is being planned in partnership with a host of organization working on the front-lines with immigrants and refugees. Massachusetts Jobs with Justice! is the lead organizer, and partners include ACLU Massachusetts, American Friends Service Committee, Asian American Resource Workshop (AARW), Brazilian Worker Center/Centro do Trabalhador Brasileiro, Centro Comunitario de Trabajadores, Driving Families Forward, Free Siham, Indivisible Massachusetts, Massachusetts Interfaith Worker Justice, Massachusetts TPS Committee, Muslim Justice League, Massachusetts Safe Communities Coalition, Sol y Canto, SURJ Boston - Showing Up for Racial Justice, and The Welcome Project, with additional organizations joining daily.
Invite your friends, and together we will light up the world (and social media - #lights4liberty #dontlookaway #endusconcentrationcamps) to demand an end to these concentration camps.
