UPDATE: Wyatt scheduled their meeting for 6pm last Friday, and, singing Shabbat prayers, we cancelled their meeting.

The board is meeting tonight and we are back, once again, to pray with our feet.

As the meeting begins, we are asking: which side are you on?

We are urging board members to vote no or resign their positions. Never Again is Now.

UPDATE: As protestors ripped black cloth in mourning for those held in facilities like this across the country, the Wyatt board decided that they will not be voting.

WATCH: Organizers are conducting a press conference, beginning immediately: facebook.com/NeverAgainActi…
Earlier this evening, we ripped black cloth in mourning for those held in facilities like this across the country.

.@GovRaimondo: #JewsAgainstICE and our allies will keep showing up in Rhode Island until our demands are met.

1. Support legislation to close this facility and ban private prisons
2. Release ICE detainees
3. Ban collaboration with ICE across the state and local level
Tonight we completed an ancient Jewish ritual called Kree-yah. Kree-yah is the tearing of one’s clothes or the tearing of cloth to mark a great loss or to respond to a great evil. We mourned, in grieving anticipation, of those whose lives will be threatened by the Board’s vote.
Ripped cloth symbolizes that certain types of loss can never be fully healed. The trauma of being detained can never be undone. Accounts of conditions in Wyatt & other ICE concentration camps, show us atrocities that will never be fully healed. #JewsAgainstICE #NeverAgainIsNow
The pressure we and @amornetwork are putting on the Wyatt prison board is working! The board postponed a vote on privatizing the prison and cementing their agreement with ICE, which is a big step!

But we still have a long way to go to #ShutDownWyatt...
