Seabold United Methodist Church is inviting the community to take part in a silent candlelight vigil on Friday, July 12 for all those who are held in U.S. detention camps by the Trump administration.
As part of this nationwide rally, the Bainbridge vigil will begin at 7 p.m. with speakers, including Sally Tellekson, executive director of the Kitsap Immigrant Assistance Center. She will speak about her organization and relate stories of immigrants who have come to Kitsap County. She will share suggestions for what the public can do to end the illegal jailing of men and women and also the children who have been separated from their parents.
Following speeches and conversation, at 9 p.m. the group will line Highway 305 in front of Seabold Church with candles and stand in silence in solidarity with others in cities all across America.
Attendees can bring a blanket or chairs as the vigil will take place outdoors on the lawn for the event. People are welcome to bring snacks and drinks, however no alcohol or smoking is allowed.
Seabold UMC is located at 6894 Seabold Church Road NE. Call 206-842-3622 with any questions.
