FRIDAY, JULY 12
In case you missed it, we are mobilizing with hundreds of groups in the U.S. and around the world to protest the horrific conditions for refugees at our southern border.
WHAT: Lights for Liberty National Candlelight Vigil
WHEN: Friday, July 12, 2019, 7:00 – 9:00
WHERE: U.S. Customs and Border Protection Center, 1431 Sunset Avenue, Ferndale, WA 98248
WHO: Co-Sponsors, Indivisible Bellingham and Community 2 Community, With Host Aimee Day
WHY: Enough is enough on the issue of separation of immigrant families by ICE and CBP under the direction of the Trump administration. Not only are children being separated from their families, but they are being held longer than what has been legally allowed in overcrowded detention camps with inadequate daily necessities for the maintenance of health.
Join Indivisible Bellingham and C2C to protest this situation! We are expecting large numbers of activists, but parking is limited; so carpool if possible.
The location is about 10 minutes north of Bellingham. Bring a candle and be prepared to support the voices of those who have experienced the injustice of family separation.

5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. – social gathering; bring food or drink to share; also free pizza and ice water

What is the Indivisible Guide?
Indivisible was founded by a group of former Congressional staffers who, in the early Obama days watched how the Tea Party blocked President Obama’s agenda. Go to the national website for more information: https://www.indivisibleguide.com/
