Lights For Liberty Action Friday

People across the world, including here in Kentucky, are disgusted and distrubed by the images coming from ICE detention facilities. Children in cages, overcrowding concentration camps, and threats of raids targeting undocumneted people have left many people feeling simultaneously scared and angry. To show opposition to the violence being done to these communities, lift up the stories of those impacted, and to oppose these gross human rights violations, people are gathering to host vigils and other actions this Friday as part of an international day of action.  (All times listed are local)

In Northern Kentucky, those unable to make the vigil will be gathering at the Boone County Detention Center (3020 Conrad Lane) from 1 to 5:30. Boone County has been one of the largest ICE detention centers in Kentucky. There will be a larger vigil being held at the Florence Community Plaza (8001 Mall Road in Florence) at 8 pm.

Members in the Wilderness Trace region are meeting for a vigil in Danville at Weisiger Park (600 W Walnut Street) at 7 pm. 

Those in Frankfort are meeting at 7 pm for a vigil at the Kentucky State Capitol (700 Capitol Avenue). 

Lexington's vigil is at 8 pm in the Courthouse Plaza at 120 North Limestone.

In Louisville people are gathering at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church at 2233 Woodbourne Ave. at 7:45 for a vigil, and will be concluding with a march.

In Paris people are gathering at Art on High (625 High Street in Paris) at 8 pm, where they will be working on collaborative art and writing letters to oppose the concentration camps. 

Bowling Green members and allies are holding a vigil in front of William H Natcher Federal Courthouse at 7 pm.
