Lights for Liberty
July 12, 2019 @ 8:45 pm - 9:15 pm
On Friday, July 12th, 2019, Lights for Liberty: A Nationwide Vigil to End Human Detention Camps, will bring thousands of Americans into the streets and into their own front yards, to bring to attention the inhumane conditions faced by refugees.
At 9 pm local time, at every detention camp, and in cities, towns and homes around America, a silent sea of candles will light up our nation—shining light on the oppressive conditions faced by those held in detention centers.
For neighbors and friends in the east side community, there will be a gathering at Villa Maria del Mar Retreat Center in Santa Cruz starting at 8:45 pm at 21918 East Cliff Drive. The group will gather at the front street entrance and after a reading / reflection on the current situation participants will light candles at 9 pm (provided by the Villa) in solidarity with all throughout the nation who are lighting candles for light, hope and for the values our nation strives to uphold.
