Lights for Liberty Protest and Vigil

Detroit Protest
On Friday July 12th after work, I participated in the Lights for Liberty march on E. Jefferson in Detroit. Regardless of what your politics are, we should all be appalled at the way this administration is treating immigrants and people seeking asylum. The separation of children from their parents and the conditions at the camps are horrific.

What You Can Do
There are many non-profits working to alleviate the problems at the border. Here are some links. If you are able, consider making a donation.



Learn More about Immigration Issues
One website that has a great deal of information about immigration issues is the Catholic Legal Immigration Network. They have a nice fact sheet on family separations that you can use to share the information with family, friends, and neighbors.

New Year's Day 2018 in Detroit

New Year's Day 2018
Happy New Year!! Another year has passed and that means it's now time to share the annual Detroit
River video! This year the video was shot using an iPhone app called Clips. The Clips app allows you to add photos to the video clip, so you will see some still photos mixed in. It's a useful app for creating quick videos from your iPhone. And with the cold weather in Detroit it worked out quite well!
