MI PPC Candlelight Vigil at Ingham County Jail

Tue, Dec 11, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm


On Tuesday night, the Michigan Poor People's campaign, and the Detroit Light Brigade will stand on the other side of the wall from Bill and Tommy who are being held at the Ingham County Jail. We will join our cries with theirs as we light candles to remember all of those who are incarcerated that night. Join us for an interfaith, candlelit vigil to stand against the prison system. We will read and sing and hold silence for an end to mass incarceration.

We will speak the demands of the Poor People’s Campaign:
The truth is that poor communities, especially poor communities of color, are being locked up, sent away and killed by law enforcement. Equal protection under the law is non-negotiable and we have the right to move freely without the fear of intimidation, detention, deportation or death by public institutions charged with our safety.
• We demand an end to mass incarceration and the continuing inequalities for black, brown and poor white people within the criminal justice system.
• We demand equality and the safety of all persons regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.
