On Friday, people from every walk of life will spill into the streets to bring attention to the Trump administration’s handling of refugees subject to inhumane conditions at detention camps across the country.
In Tampa, this act of solidarity — happening as part of the nationwide Lights for Liberty movement — will have a home base: Ybor City’s Centennial Park, where protestors will gather near the square’s immigrant statue to hear speakers before a walk to the U.S. Customs and Border Control office on 8th Avenue.
The event begins at 7 p.m. and the march begins at 8 p.m., and all POC, LGBTQ, disabled or impacted people are welcome to partake. More information is available on social media.
A St. Petersburg Lights for Liberty event is being organized by Allendale United Methodist Church.
