Lights for Liberty: Berlin Vigil to End Detention Camps

July 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Trump administration’s horrific immigration policies have created the untenable conditions for migrant children and families. We condemn the detention camps in the United States and the humanitarian travesties at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Catalyzed by the call to action by the Lights for Liberty coalition, the Berlin chapter of Democrats Abroad is working with American Voices Abroad Berlin and the Coalition Berlin to organize a candlelight vigil in solidarity with the hundreds of vigils taking place across United States on the same day.

We call on all US citizens, especially those living overseas, to show take a stand against to these policies. Berlin is a city with many immigrants, and a city that has seen the horrifying conclusion to this type of rhetoric. We hope that there are many here who would join in solidarity with the refugees being held in detention camps in the United States.

Please bring a candle and join us in a vigil in front of the US embassy to protest these policies. Please help spread the word by sharing our Facebook event widely.
