Vigil for Migrant Families Detained at Berks

Feb 24, 2019

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, February 24,  at the Berks County Residential Center, 1040 Berks Road, Leesport, PA 19533.  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.
