Prayer Vigil for the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights @ Butler County Jail
Dec 10 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

On Monday December 10 at 8pm, we will hold a vigil to mark the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the ICE Detention Facility at the Butler County Jail in Hamilton, OH. We will use this opportunity to highlight the human rights abuses committed in the name of immigration enforcement. From child detention and family separation to tear-gassing asylum seekers, the cruelty continues to escalate so we will gather to lift up the individuals and communities impacted by these inhumane policies.

The event is sponsored by the University of Dayton Human Rights Center and Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Church in Dayton. The program will include speakers, songs, and prayer, and we will update our event website as we confirm details:
