Group Organizing “Lights for Liberty” Vigil on July 12

The Lights for Liberty Vigil is part of a nationwide event on July 12th.  The Whitewater event will be held at the Cravath Lakefront Park from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. 

Lights for Liberty: A Nationwide Vigil to End Human Detention Camps is coming to Whitewater on Friday, July 12. The vigil will begin at 8:30 pm at Cravath Lakefront Park, and is expected to go until 9:30 pm, with participants joining a nationwide moment of silence at 9:00 pm.

Whitewater-area residents came together quickly to plan this event, which has a simple mission: to stand together, dedicated to human rights and the fundamental principle behind democracy that all human beings have a right to life, liberty and dignity. We are partnering with international, national, regional and local communities and organizations who believe that these fundamental rights are not negotiable and are willing to protect them.

Parking is available at Cravath Lakefront Park, and participants will gather in the NE part of the park that runs along Main Street, near the flags that honor U.S. military veterans. A few flameless candles will be available on-site, but participants are asked to bring their own if they have them.  

Lights for Liberty vigils are scheduled in more than 500 locations around the United States and the world, with new locations being added daily. A vigil will also be held in Fort Atkinson, with residents meeting at the Main Street bridge at 8:30pm. More information can be found at
