By 8:30pm on the night of June 30th, a national day of action to protest the separation of children and parents at the US southern border, it was time to bring out the candles in Mountain View, California.

Candlelight illuminated speakers, signs, and equipment. A small child balanced atop her father's shoulders as the daylight waned. It was time for a round of We Shall Overcome, the song dissipating in the night air.

2,000 people filled the plaza, one of the largest turnouts at the city's civic center ever.
