On December 29, 2016, JVP Philly members gathered at Mayor Jim Kenney's public Chanukah ceremony, where we formed a human menorah and affirmed our solidarity with immigrants and refugees and our commitment to fighting white supremacy and Islamophobia. We had the opportunity to speak with the mayor, who gave us a shout-out in his speech and promised to maintain Philly's sanctuary city status. 

Here is a video of part of the action:
