In response to the massive ICE raids taking place around the U.S., the Close the Camps Coalition is hosting a “Close the Camps Rally” in protest against the detention camps on our southern border. The rally will also protest for-profit prisons that are housing tens of thousands of refugees and immigrants.
Attendees of the rally will stand in front of the Holocaust Memorial Center and protest against the separation of hundreds of children from their parents.
The rally will take place on Aug. 20 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Holocaust Memorial Center, 28123 Orchark Lake Rd., Farmington Hills.
