Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition

Monthly Vigil/Vigilia to Shut Down the Berks Family Detention Center

Date: Jan 21 2018, 3:30 pm
Location: 1040 Berks Rd, Leesport, PA 19533

Pennsylvania is home to one of three immigrant family detention centers in the country, and the only publicly-owned one. Governor Wolf has known for two years that his administration could remove families from the abuse and neglect that they have been enduring in the Berks County Family Detention Center. The Governor’s administration has done the bare minimum to right the immoral and illegal detention of immigrant families.

Pastor Maria and Daniel Erdman from Iglesia Presbiteriana Resurreccion will leading our next vigil. Please join us as we continue to lift our voices for the individuals who continue to be detained in the Berks County Detention Center. Please read more about the event and RSVP.
