Winchester Activists to Hold Vigil for Migrant Children
19 June 2018 News
Activist group Indivisible Winchester is hosting a Wednesday night vigil in support of migrant children who have been separated from their parents at the U.S./Mexico border.
The event will be held tomorrow (6/19/18) at 7 p.m. at 20 North Loudoun Street, just outside the Shenandoah Valley Civil War Museum. Activists will be collecting donations for children affected by the current administration’s “zero-tolerance” illegal immigration policy; items they are seeking include toys, blankets, and coloring books. A portion of these will be taken directly to the Immigration Customs Enforcement Farmville Detention Center on July 7, 2018, where there will be an overnight vigil with citizens across Virginia participating. Leading up to this event, local business including Hideaway Cafe, Dharma Yoga, Winchester Book Gallery and Tin Top Gallery will all be taking in donations.
