Please attend the Lights for Liberty Vigil being held in Pittsburgh this Friday, July 12, at 7:30 pm at Schenley Plaza in Oakland. We join over 580 locations and outraged people from around the country and the world to shine a light on the horrific abuses of the Trump administration in human detention camps. Please also notify your friends and networks. Also please bring candles and matches.
Here in Pittsburgh, Casa San Jose, All for All, 1Hood, ARYSE, Pittsburgh United, and Bend the Arc will demand that Gov. Wolf shut down the Berks County (PA) Family Detention Center, a prison for immigrant families, where children as young as 2-weeks-old have been incarcerated for the last 5 years. Governor Wolf has the power to issue an Emergency Removal Order (ERO) on the Berks County Detention Center, and we will ask him to do it.
