Lights for Liberty

July 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On Friday July 12, from 7 pm to 9 pm, the greater Princeton community will come together for Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Detention Camps. The event is being held worldwide to spotlight the current inhumane treatment of immigrant families.

Beginning at 7 pm, community groups will have tables available to share information, petitions and action items. There will be live music and an art installation on view for the event. Starting at 8 pm local advocates and representatives will speak on the issue of human detention camps in the United States and the impact to our communities. 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.

The Princeton event will feature prominent activists and local representatives including: Maria Juega, co-founder of the Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund, Princeton Councilwoman Leticia Fraga, Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker, Pastor Alexis Fuller-Wright of Christ Congregation Princeton, and Patricia Fernandez-Kelly, director of the Center for Migration and Development at Princeton University as well as sharing of stories from families directly affected by our current administration’s cruel & unusual policies.
