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:
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.
