At the West County Detention Facility in Richmond
We come from so many different stories and histories of trauma and loss. Sharing these stories and listening to each other, we heal and build connection.
July 21 is the Jewish holy day of Tisha B’Av, a day of mourning and fasting to remember the communal losses of our people.
The West County Detention Facility in Richmond incarcerates both immigrants without papers and people caught in the prison-industrial complex. It has become a site of protest and pilgrimage to resist the gears of oppression that grind in our own neighborhoods.
This year, we gather here with people of all backgrounds to share, to grieve, to resist and to build something better.
7:00 pm – Community / multifaith story-sharing and witness
8:00 pm ish – Candlelight Tisha B’Av service with chanting of Lamentations/ Eicha
