On Friday July 12th, 2019, Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Immigration Detention  will take place at the The Wilde Lake Interfaith Center, 10431 Twin Rivers Road, Columbia. The event is part of a series of vigil events that will bring thousands of Americans to detention camps across the country, into the streets and into their own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by refugees.

As of today, Lights for Liberty vigils are scheduled in seventy-five locations around the United States and the world, with new locations being added daily.

Activists and impacted persons will speak on the issue of human detention camps in the United States from 7PM to 9PM. At 9 p.m., around the country and around the world, participants will light candles in a silent vigil for all those held in US detention camps to bring light to the darkness of the Trump administration’s horrific policies.
