#Lights4Liberty: Vigil Gathering for Immigrant Children in Downtown Oakland

Date & Time: Friday, July 12, 2019 at 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM

Location: Oakland City Hall, 1 Frank H Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA 94612

Join immigrant rights advocates, multi-faith clergy, labor unions, elected officials and the Asian Pacific Labor Alliance (APALA) in standing together as part of the Lights for Liberty worldwide vigil.

Children should not be in cages. Threats of mass deportation, deaths at our borders, and the inhumane detention conditions of children are unacceptable.

Families belong together. Close the camps. Stop ICE raids. Tu familia es mi familia. Your family is my family.
