Lights for Liberty Candlelight Vigil

Friday, July 12, 2019


Some concerned residents in Calhoun County have joined forces with a nationwide effort aimed at putting an end to human detention camps at our border. “Lights for Liberty” is a national candlelight vigil that will be held across the country Friday evening. Thousands of Americans are expected to participate in this protest against the detention camps. 


Local ministers, community leaders and children’s groups will be outside the federal building in Anniston to lead inspirational songs, and words of encouragement. Sheila Gilbert hopes this nationwide gathering will make a difference.


“Lights for Liberty” Candlelight Vigil will be held in front of the Federal Building on Noble Street beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. Candles will be provided and the names of children who have died while in U.S. custody will be read. For more information, visit
