New Year’s Eve Witness


The New Sanctuary Coalition encourages this action as a witness on New Year’s Eve:


🙏🏽Please share widely🙏🏽
Immigrants are dying in detention. This Administration separates families, and locks parents and children in cages. They are inhumane and evil.
Come together in community and solidarity with migrants and refugees at the border and in detention all over the United States.
Let us keep those who have been unjustly stripped of freedom in our hearts.
We will not look away from injustice and inhumanity.
‪At 11pm on New Year’s Eve, let’s light‬ up the night sky and illuminate the beginning of a new decade of freedom.

Share a picture or video of your lit candle and tag us. Use the hashtags #lightacandle #dontlookaway #FreeThemAll

Watch for my picture. I hope to see yours.

No concentrated exercise time so no play lists.
