Interfaith Prayer Vigils

Prayer Service for Liberation

See the video

During the season of holy days of Jewish Passover, Christian Holy Week, and upcoming Muslim Ramadan and Buddhist Hanamatsuri;
we invite your presence virtually to pray with us for the closing of the first ten detention centers.

Interwoven with music and prayers, we will have testimonies from immigrants who experienced detention and faith leaders from some of the ten sites we are pushing to close.

Together we call for the liberation of those still held captive.

We invite the national interfaith community and all those impacted by our immigration and incarceration systems to come together as we deliver this message from the faith community to President Biden and his administration.

This event was organized by:

  • Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity
  • American Friends Service Committee
  • Church World Service
  • Unitarian Universalist Service Committee
  • Detention Watch Network

Have You Signed the Faith Letter for Liberation?
National Faith Letter urging Congress and the Biden administration to end the contracts and close the first ten (#FirstTen) detention centers. This would move our nation in the direction towards humane treatment and effective community alternatives to detention.
