LIGHTS for LIBERTY
 

Our Mission:

Freedom.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” - Emma Lazarus, as Inscribed on the Statue of Liberty

 

So grateful to have the support of Dolores and her foundation!

Our Mission

We are a coalition of people, many of whom are mothers, dedicated to human rights, and the fundamental principle behind democracy that all human beings have a right to life, liberty and dignity.

We are partnering with international, national, regional and local communities and organizations who believe that these fundamental rights are not negotiable and are willing to protect them.

On Friday July 12th, 2019, Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Concentration Camps, will bring thousands of people to locations worldwide as well as to concentration camps across country, into the streets and into their own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by migrants.

 

Our Impact

On Friday July 12th, 2019, Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Concentration Camps, will bring thousands of people to locations worldwide as well as to concentration camps across the country, into the streets and into their own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by migrants.

Key events are planned in El Paso, Texas, where migrants are being housed in outdoor conditions under a bridge with no running water for months at a time; Homestead, FL, at a migrant child detention facility that has caused mass abuse and neglect; in San Diego, near the point of entry site from Tijuana; in New York City, at Foley Square, where hundreds of migrants are processed through detention a day; and in Washington, DC, in Lafayette Park, to demand action from Congress to end concentration camps and impeach the President. Legislators, activists, organizers, and members of impacted communities will speak prior to the candlelight vigil.

Across this country, we have witnessed acts against people fleeing persecution many of us thought we would never see in modern times.

At Trump’s concentration camps, teen mothers and babies are held outdoors in “dog pounds.” We have witnessed the sick and elderly confined to “icebox” rooms for weeks at a time. Unbelievably, children as young as 4 months are taken from their parents, medicine is confiscated, and medical care withheld, and LGBTQ and disabled individuals are held in solitary confinement.

“The Trump administration’s immigration policies and detention camps meet the United Nations’ definition of genocide and crimes against humanity,” said Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin, lawyer, activist and organizer. “Congress is refusing to stop the president and his policies. We cannot allow these atrocities to be perpetrated in our name.”

Perhaps most terrifying, refugees are beginning to be moved onto military grounds, where there will be a lack of oversight from the media, lawyers, and human rights monitors.

“Now is the time for every person to stand up and say, ‘We will not accept this!’ No more hesitating. No more denial. No more fear. We need to be bold, and loud, and unrelenting. That’s the only way we can stop this,” said Kristin Mink, activist and organizer.

Lights for Liberty seeks to create this event in solidarity and allyship with communities most impacted by the abuse of our immigration system. We seek to work in solidarity with grassroots organizations both new and historic, those who are well-funded and on shoe-string budgets. We are moved to mobilize with anyone: moms, dads, and people of moral conscience who cannot stand to see families and communities destroyed. Simply put, our country is at a tipping point.


"The candle burns not for us, but for all those whom we failed to rescue from prison, who were shot on the way to prison, who were tortured, who were kidnapped, who 'disappeared'. That's what the candle is for."

-Peter Benenson, founder of Amnesty International

CREATE A LOCAL EVENT

1. LOCATION- Pick a site for your vigil. A detention center if possible, local government office, faith center, or park. A map of detention centers can be found here:

www.freedomforimmigrants.org/detention-statistics

If you expect turn out to be large, contact your local permitting office. You may also choose to just light a candle at 9 P.M. in front of your home, in which case skip to Step 4.

2. REGISTER- Create a Facebook event page. Please name your event “Lights for Liberty: City, State”. This will help people find your local event. Then, submit your local event through the form below.

3. OUTREACH- Contact local organizations and invite them to be involved as sponsors who will share your event and mobilize their members to attend.

If you’re having speakers prior to 9 P.M., ask migrant-centric organizations if they have anyone who would like to speak. You can also invite local politicians to speak. Template letters are available under Downloads.

The Organizers of Lights for Liberty are committed to centering all vigils on impacted communities. We will remove any event where any POC, LGBTQ, disabled or impacted persons are not treated with equity, dignity, inclusion and respect.

4. JULY 12-

Share your action via Facebook live @Lights4Liberty, Twitter @lights4liberty, Instagram lights4liberty. We are using #lights4liberty #dontlookaway #endusconcentrationcamps.

At 9pm, please hold a candle and share a moment of silence. Together we will light up the world (and social media) to demand an end to human detention camps.

Details of exact vigil locations will continue to be announced in the coming days.
We welcome all individuals and organizations who support an end to human detention camps to participate in a main or local event.
