Lights for Liberty

Lights for Liberty is a coalition of people, many of whom are mothers, dedicated to human rights, and the fundamental principle behind democracy that all human beings have a right to life, liberty and dignity. The coalition is partnering with international, national, regional and local communities and organizations who believe that these fundamental rights are not negotiable and are willing to protect them.
On Friday July 12, Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Concentration Camps, will bring thousands of people to locations worldwide, as well as to concentration camps across country, into the streets and into their own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by migrants.
In Cincinnati, plans are to gather in front of the office of U.S. Senator Rob Portman, 312 Walnut Street in downtown Cincinnati, at 5:30 p.m. on July 12, to protest against the current inhumane detention and deportation policies. At 6:30 p.m., the group will walk to Christ Church Cathedral for a prayer vigil in the main nave.
