Shining Lights for Liberty

Lights for Liberty
/

Tonight thousands of people across the country will join in vigils to push back against the way the U.S. government treats migrants--separating families, and holding them in jammed detention centers. It’s a national movement, called “Lights for Liberty.” We talk with local organizers Zainab Chaudry from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Tracie Guy-Decker from Jews United for Justice, and Elizabeth Alex, from CASA-Baltimore.
