Lights for Liberty, a vigil to draw attention to the inhumane conditions faced by refugees being held in confinement, is scheduled for Friday, July 12, from 7:30 – 9 pm, at the Flagpole in downtown Livermore. The event is being hosted by Livermore Indivisible.

Events are being held around the country and in other parts of the world. Recent news reports have described children being given only Mylar blankets to sleep on concrete floors; children assigned to care for toddlers; refugees given no toothbrush, soap, showers or bathing for weeks; lights and fans operating 24 hours a day; crowding so there is no room to stretch or sleep; and kids falling asleep during interviews with visitors. The number one complaint of those held in detention is medical neglect.
