Update: Wyatt cancelled their meeting and rescheduled it for 6pm tonight. If you're thinking "isn't sundown on Friday when Jews begin observing the Sabbath, and thus not a good time for a public meeting?", you're right. But we'll be there anyway, praying with our feet ✡️🔥✡️
And we won't be there alone! We're following in the footsteps of local immigrant rights groups like @amornetwork, who've been fighting to #ShutDownWyatt since before #JewsAgainstICE was a hashtag. That's why we're splitting all donations with AMOR!

@amornetwork RIGHT NOW: Hundreds of us are inside the Wyatt Board Meeting, where we’re fighting their plan to privatize the detention center and extend their contract with ICE! #NeverAgainIsNow

@amornetwork The Wyatt Board meeting is packed with hundreds of Rhode Islanders: immigrants from @amornetwork, Jews with @NeverAgainActn, and allies from all faiths. We will not be bystanders as they privatize the detention center and continue to work with ICE.

WATCH: facebook.com/NeverAgainActi…
@amornetwork "We are here mourning the lives of eight people who have died in ICE custody... We are here mourning the people who have died crossing the border... We are here to protect life and safety."

@amornetwork "You have a choice. If they are asking you to do what is undefendable, then resign."

Inside the Wyatt Board Meeting, hundreds are fighting against a plan to privatize the detention center and extend its contract with ICE.

HAPPENING NOW: facebook.com/NeverAgainActi…
@amornetwork We will be here into the night. We have our signs and we have our songs. We are urging board members to vote no or resign their positions. Never Again is Now.

@amornetwork The board members are walking out of the room.

Hundreds came and said we would not allow this facility to become a private prison and continue working with ICE.

We shut down the meeting. We will make our voices heard.

@amornetwork UPDATE: Tonight, we shut down this meeting. Hundreds of us stopped the board from turning Wyatt into a private prison and working with ICE.

But the work is not done.

The board will gather again on Monday from 5-7pm and we will be back.

Text NEVER to 83224 to get involved.
@amornetwork This is what it looks like when we pray with our feet, pray so hard that it’s impossible for business as usual to continue. We can’t and we won't allow Wyatt Detention Center to privatize and renew its contract with ICE.

Shabbat Shalom and #AbolishICE
