Candlelight Vigils For Incarcerated Youth

Wednesday, April 28, will be the 100th day since the tragic deaths of Durrell Feaster, 18, and Deon Whitfield, 17. On January 19, authorities found Durrell and Deon hanged in the cell they shared in the California Youth Authority's Stockton facility.

To commemorate this solemn day, Books Not Bars is organizing "Stop the Tragedies, Stop the Abuse," a statewide candlelight vigil in honor of Durrell, Deon and every young person whose life has been stolen or broken by CYA.

Join in downtown Santa Cruz or Watsonville to remember all of our youth lost in a scary system. Let's pray and work for change.

Wednesday April 28
7:00 - 8:00 PM

In SANTA CRUZ: Clock Tower @ Pacific and Front Street

In WATSONVILLE: Main Plaza @ Main Street
