‘Lights for Liberty’ vigil to end detention camps to take place in Hoboken

Council President Jen Giattino will join organizations around the world in sponsoring a Lights for Liberty candlelight vigil on Friday, July 12, to end human concentration camps across the United States.

Thousands of people are expected to participate in similar events in their communities and outside detention centers to call for an end to human detention.

“The detention of immigrants, refugees, and families is an inhumane practice that strips individuals of their basic rights,” Giattino said. “Together, we as a city will take a stand for democracy and work toward putting an end to these intolerable conditions. I invite all of Hoboken to join us to show their support for those who are detained and suffering behind bars across our country.”

The vigil will take place at Church Square Park, 499 Willow Ave., from 7 to 9 p.m.

Candles will be provided.
