VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - The call to keep families together reached out to Vigo County on Saturday night.
Earlier this week, News 10 told you about several groups coming together to organize the Families Belong Together Rally.
It took place around 6:30 p.m. in front of the Vigo County Courthouse.
People wore white to show solidarity for families at the border.
The protests are in response to the President Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy.
"I'm really excited that here in the Wabash Valley we have young people, old people, all kinds of people out in the street saying 'No we do not tolerate this,'" said Sister Barbara Battista, Sisters of Providence, "We're out, and we're loud and we're going to keep getting in the streets until a change is made."
Another goal in Saturday's protest was getting people registered to vote.
Group leaders said they wanted people to be aware of individuals put into office.
We'll have more on their efforts in another story, coming up Sunday night on News 10.
