June 18 Berks Detention Center Vigil

Jun 18, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

You can show your support for migrant children and families being detained in Berks County at a vigil from 3:30-4:30 p.m., Sunday, June 18,  at the Berks County Residential Center, 1040 Berks Road, Leesport, PA 19533.  The vigil is being led by Savannah Sullivan, a member of  Zion Lutheran Church in York and Communities of Hope, a worshiping community in the Lower Susquehanna Synod. Parking is across the street from the center. Vigils are being held monthly to show those detained inside that they are not forgotten.  For more information or to volunteer to lead one of the vigils, contact John Michael Cotignola-Pickens, Advocacy Programs Coordinator at the Pa. Council of Churches.

Read more about family detention, including the Berks Center, which remains open while the county appeals the state’s revocation of its license.
