Golden Vision to Reunite For June 9 Vigil

On Sunday, June 9 at 4 p.m.,  across from the York County Prison,  the grassroots inter-faith group, The People of the Golden Vision, will once again gather to remember the struggle for freedom and justice.  The vigil is open to everyone.   There will be a recreation of the vigils held each Sunday.  Facilitators of the service include attorney Jeff Lobach, then President of the York County Bar Assoc., who will give a brief history of the Golden Venture passengers;  Joan Maruskin, United Methodist minister, who will lead the vigil, Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Bookstore owner, who will preach; Mary Weaver, Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Center Executive Director, who will give an update on the asylum seekers, and Rod Merrill, Golden Venture troubadour, who wrote a new song every week for 3.5 years to tell the plight of the asylum seekers. 
The public is invited to join the People for the Golden Vision for the 20th anniversary vigil.  For more information, please contact Joan M. Maruskin at jmmaruskin@gmail.com or 202 203-0676
