Fri Jul 12th – 7pm-8pm Candlelight Vigil 🕯️ Union Station in Tacoma. #CloseTheCampsNow
This is part of a nationwide constellation of events ✨ lead by Lights for Liberty
MAKE SOME 📣 NOISE for DETAINEES
& SHOW SOLIDARITY ✊ at the NWDC PICNIC!
Join La Resistencia for this family-friendly action.
Sat. July 13th – 12:30 pm-4pm
Northwest Tacoma Detention Center
1623 E J St, Tacoma
Gather with friends, sing, wave signs, bang on pots, make some noise, and bear witness so detainees know they’re not alone. We can also make donations to help detainees and families in need.
If you can only make it to one of these events, we urge you to attend the NWDC Picnic. La Resistencia has long been on the frontlines for the fight against immigrant detention here in Tacoma. Here, we can connect with like-minded folks and learn more about how we can fight this grave injustice and support detainees and their families.
Bring signs, something to eat or drink, and pots, pans (with utensils) or other noise-making implements.

Lights For Liberty: Tacoma, WA is also hosting a vigil on Friday night at the NWDC from 7pm-9:30 p.m.
