Light a candle – New Year’s Eve

I will join my friends in the New Sanctuary Coalition in lighting a candle on New Year’s Eve. Will you join us?

In 2020, too many lights were dimmed by COVID19.

Immigrant, migrant, and refugee communities have been devastated by the impact of the virus and by the family separation the U.S. immigration system has wrought.

Thousands of our Friends are still detained, and in danger, and ICE is responsible. Thousands more live in constant fear of being torn from their families and communities at any moment.

Let us come together in community and solidarity with those in limbo 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 the freedom we will continue to fight for. Share a picture or video of your lit candle and tag us. Use the hashtags #lightacandle #dontlookaway #FreeThemAll
