No Cages Rally and Vigil

On Saturday, July 27, a coalition of local organizations is holding a #UCNoCages public art demonstration and vigil to protest Trump’s mass raids and border cages. This vigil and demo is intended to draw attention to the immigration crisis taking place at the US-Mexico border, but also in Champaign-Urbana.

To bring local awareness to the dire situation children face at the border, cages will be erected in front of the Champaign County Courthouse in downtown Urbana. There will be art created and displayed by youth who have recently arrived to CU after spending time in the cages. Local volunteers will be staying overnight in these cages.

The following Sunday morning, volunteers released from cages will walk to UUCUC, accompanied by the Immigration Justice Task Force. We invite you to be present for the 9:30 a.m. witness and short walk to our church. Questions? Contact Pam 773.556.3418.
