Handshake Bridge - (the pedestrian bridge between Loring Park and Walker Art Garden)


Join AIUSA and co-sponsoring organizations for vigils to end the ongoing abuse of human rights by closing the detention center once and for all.

We'll meet at the bridge, hold banners and make our presence on the bridge.  

This is a worldwide campaign with locations participating around the world.
