Vigil Friday at Shoreline UU Church will demand end to cruel treatment of immigrants at southern border

Thursday, July 11, 2019

On Friday evening at 8pm Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Church, 14724 1st Ave NE, Shoreline 98155 will host a vigil as a part of the Lights for Liberty movement.

Across the country thousands of faith organizations and community groups will light candles to demand an end to the cruel treatment of the adults and children at the border.

We will hear from a person impacted by immigrant detention, sing together, and learn how we can take further steps to close the concentration camps.

If you are unable to attend but would like to take action to help immigrants, please sign up with the WA Immigrant Solidarity Network. 

Join us in volunteering with their Rapid Response Network, which helps local immigrants know their rights, get legal assistance, and resist deportation. Sign up here.

Donations are tremendously helpful in getting legal aid to migrants and refugees, which reduces family separations and incarceration times. RAICES is a Texas-based nonprofit helping thousands of people. Give here.
