Carolers visit Wyatt Detention Center on Christmas Eve



Just over 60 people sand Christmas carols outside the Wyatt Detention Facility on Christmas Eve in solidarity with the people who are detained inside. Hosted by Sister Mary Pendergast and Providence resident Nancy Green, people sang traditional winter songs for about an hour to let those incarcerated inside know that they are not forgotten.

Here’s some video and pictures from the event.
