Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition

June Monthly Vigil – #ShutDownBerks!

Date: Jun 17 2018, 3:30 pm
Location: 1040 Berks Rd, Leesport, PA 19533

Pennsylvania is home to one of three family detention centers in the country – and the only publicly owned one.¬†Families have reported verbal abuse, workers’ rights abuses, medical neglect and in its first year of operation a mother was raped in front of other families.

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. Families continue to be abused under the state’s watch.

June’s vigil will be led by Shut Down Berks Interfaith Witness with the ANNA Crusis Choir. Please join us as we continue to lift our voices for the individuals who continue to be detained in the Berks County Detention Center. RSVP on Facebook.
