Lights for Liberty – New Orleans, La

Hosted by Jenny Yanez

We are a coalition of people, many of whom are mothers, dedicated to human rights, and the fundamental principle behind democracy that all human beings have a right to life, liberty and dignity. We are partnering with national, regional and local communities and organizations who believe that these fundamental rights are not negotiable and are willing to protect them.
On Friday July 12th, 2019, Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Detention Camps, will bring thousands of Americans to detention camps across the country, into the streets and into their own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by refugees.

Simply put, our country is at a tipping point. Therefore, Lights for Liberty seeks to create this event in solidarity and allyship with communities most impacted by the abuse of our immigration system. We seek to work in solidarity with grassroots organizations both new and historic, those who are well-funded and on a shoe-string budget. We are moved to mobilize with anyone: moms, dads, and people of moral conscience who cannot stand to see families and communities destroyed.
About Lights for Liberty: Lights for Liberty is a loose coalition of grassroots activists, with support from long-standing immigrants’ rights organizations and other organizers.

One thought on “Lights for Liberty – New Orleans, La

  1. Thank you Jenny! To be silent is to be complicit and to sit this out is to be complacent. I am a decedent of Germans who fled to Brazil because they did not want to be part of the atrocities happening in Germany. We have oftentimes had dinner and party conversations where we said. If we were alive during World War II what would we have done? I am sadden to have to answer this question in 2019 but at least I know what I am doing. Love needs to win now and always.
