Today’s Action: Lights for Liberty vigils to end human concentration camps TONIGHT nationwide

We have concentration camps in our country. Some are run by the federal government while others are private, for-profit ventures allowed by state leaders.

And Congress – including some Democrats – is on the verge of awarding Trump a $387 million slush fund for even more hate-fueled deportation camps, raids, and more in the upcoming budget.

Each of those data points on their own would be grossly unacceptable. It is more important than ever, for the sake of those suffering, for those who have no resources, and for our own individual and national consciences that we do not give up, do not back down during this time of crisis.

Three actions to take TODAY:

  1. Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress. Tell them to #DefundHate by cutting the budget for ICE and CBP in the Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill, and remove entirely the $387 million slush fund.
  2. Attend the Lights for Liberty candlelight vigils TONIGHT, at city halls, detention centers, and public spaces across the nation. Add your body and voice to boost media attention.
  3. Call or email your Governor, and demand they immediately shut down any privately-run concentration camps in your state, and put the pressure on the White House to remove any federally-run camps.

We have to wonder whether some Democrats voting to fund these policies truly have the backs of those they claim to represent and believe in the values that we — their grassroots supporters, donors, and voters — hold. Just like the GOP, they too must be brought into the light and held accountable. This is our chance to do just that, and it is our moral responsibility to seize our moment.
