Friend – Inspired by a national call to action, the Newton Lights for Liberty vigil will bring people together to protest the inhumane conditions faced by refugees.

Please join us on the steps of Newton City Hall to hold a candle and share a moment of silence at 4:00 pm sharp this coming Friday, July 12th.

Newton Mayor Ruthanne Fuller will speak at 4:00 pm followed by Congressman Joe Kennedy III, who has visited several detention centers and seen the injustices first hand.

Please invite your friends, and together we will help light up the world and social media #lights4liberty #dontlookaway to demand an end to these detention camps. Here is a link to the event on our webpage or you can RSVP here on Facebook

In addition to this Newton gathering, you can also consider attending the Boston Lights for Liberty vigil (details here) on the steps of the Massachusetts State House at 7:00 pm on Friday.
