Reunite the Children Vigil
October 9, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
As of right now, nearly 500 children remain separated from their parents as a result of the Trump administration’s cruel zero-tolerance policy. The deadline for reunification was over a month ago. One of the detention centers holding these kids is here in town.
We must demand more action from the government in reuniting these children, and we must continue to raise awareness of this crisis.
To accomplish this, we are holding a vigil in front of the federal courthouse the day after Columbus day. We will attempt to personify the grief of these families, so that officials at the federal courthouse can’t turn away. We will have candles and music; please bring signs and anything else you feel might add to this event.
