Watsonville Vigil for Children at the Border
Date Sunday July 27
Time 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location Details
Watsonville Plaza
Main St, Watsonville, Ca
Event Type Vigil/Ritual
This is an interfaith vigil for all the children being detained at the border in response to the recent crisis and U.S. government response. We are also kicking off a humanitarian aid campaign on this day to collect women's undergarment (new socks or underwear), and feminine hygiene products (maxi-pads, tampons). The items are mainly for women due to the unprecedented number of young women detainees at the border. Drop-off centers around SC County are being finalized.

Here is our coalition making this event possible: Mayor Karina Cervantez, Vice Mayor Felipe Hernandez, Lutheran Community Church, United Presbyterian Church of Watsonville, First Christian Church, Defensa de Mujeres/ Women’s Crisis Support, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), People’s Democratic Club, Pajaro Valley Cesar Chavez Democratic Club, ONE Donor ONE Family

Call Mayor Karina Cervantez at 831-840-1907 if you would like more information.
