Seguimos Caminando Creative Action

As part of Seguimos Caminando (We Keep Walking), artist Michelle Angela Ortiz led several public paper flower-making workshops, creating over a thousand paper flowers with more than 100 participants that included students, educators, and families in Philadelphia. The flowers made by the participants will join the flowers made by the mothers detained at Berks Detention Center, carrying messages of freedom for the continued fight against family detention.

On Wednesday, October 25th, the hand-dyed flowers will be assembled at the north gates of City Hall to spell out “Libertad” (Freedom/ Liberty). The collective artwork is a creative action, followed by a press conference led by the Shut Down Berks Coalition to end family detention in Pennsylvania and in the United States.
