Lights For Liberty Vigil

A vigil to shine a light on inhumane conditions faced by refugee children at our border and to encourage the elimination of for-profit detention centers is set for Friday  evening at the Meridian Bridge.

As part of the Lights For Liberty event Organizer Jennifer Powell says participants will observe a moment of silence before walking to the center of the Meridian Bridge in a show of unity.

Powell says anyone who has concern for the struggle faced by refugee children who are being detained at the border is welcome to attend.

The Lights For Liberty Vigil For Refugee Children is set for 9 PM Friday (tomorrow) at the Meridian Bridge in downtown Yankton.
