I participated along with about 20 others in an immigration vigil at the Tacoma Detention Center after our Affiliates meeting on April 14. We stood as witnesses to the deeds (and misdeeds) of the staff at this "prison for profit" and showed our solidarity to the families and friends visiting their incarcerated loved ones by our hospitality and listening to their stories.
The vigils are held the second Saturday of each month at the ICE Northwest Detention Center, 1623 East J St, Tacoma from noon to 3 PM sponsored by the Washington Sanctuary Movement and a number of other organizations. Please go to their website www.washingtonsanctuary.webs.com for more information. A special Mothers Day vigil will be held Saturday May 12 and all are welcome.
