The Forsyth County Democratic Party will host a vigil on Friday night to raise support for those in detention at the southern border.
Starting at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, the party will host “Lights for Liberty: a Vigil to End Human Detention Camps” at the Forsyth County Courthouse in downtown Cumming.
According to organizers, the vigil “is in association with hundreds of others throughout the U.S. to promote human rights, regardless of national origin.”
After a welcome from party chair Melissa Clink, attendees will hear from District 27 state Senate candidate Brooke Griffiths and candidates Brenda Lopez Romero and Nabilah Islam for Georgia’s 7th Congressional district, along with remarks by Roberto Gutierrez, Maryajose Zubillaga, Jessica Garcia and Latresha Jackson.
The event is free and open to the public, and attendees are encouraged to bring tea lights. It should be noted that no open flames are allowed.
