Lights for Liberty Vigil: Shut Down the Berks Detention Center!( Pittsburgh)

Date: Jul 12 2019, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: 4100 Forbes Ave, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15260

Join Casa San Jose, All for All, 1Hood, ARYSE, Bend the Arc, and Pittsburgh United on July 12th as we demand that Gov. Wolf shut down the Berks Family Detention Center!

PA is currently home to the Berks County Family Detention Center, 1 of 3 detention centers for immigrant families, where children as young as 2-weeks-old have been incarcerated.

In 2019 the Berks County Detention Center will be entering its 5th year in operation as a immigrant family prison. That is 5 years of human rights abuses, due process violations, disregard of PA and Federal law and the immoral and unjust treatment of immigrant families. Visit this link for more information.
