Lights for Liberty Candlelight Vigil
An Interfaith Gathering
Join us on Friday night, July 12th, for a candlelight vigil calling for an end to human detention camps and to the inhumane treatment of migrants and asylum seekers. Our vigil is one of hundreds being held under the umbrella of Lights for Liberty, an organization dedicated to human rights and to the fundamental principle behind democracy that all human beings have a right to life, liberty, and dignity.

We will meet at 1600 Brenner Ave. at 8 p.m. for speakers and music and will take our lights outside at 9 p.m. to share in a moment of collective grief in simultaneous action with other Lights for Liberty events across the country.

Speakers include Rev. Mary Frances Comer, minister of Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church; Rabbi Dr. Andrew Ettin of Temple Israel; Evelyn Medina ; and Pastor Anthony Smith of Mission House.

This peaceful vigil is a non-partisan event hosted by Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church and is open to all.

Open flames are not permitted, so please bring a flashlight, camera phone light, battery operated candle or glowstick, and light up social media with the following hashtags: #Lights4Liberty #DontLookAway #EndUSDetentionCamps
