Amid the vitriolic rhetoric targeted at potential refugees coming to the U.S., a new group has just formed in Tampa Bay to help refugees get basic services and adjust to life in a new country.

WMNF News interviewed Dezeray Lyn, a community organizer in Tampa and is working on the project that’s called Love Has No Borders – Refugees Welcome Here.

On their Facebook event page the group Tampa Light Brigade notes that they will have an action tonight in support of refugees. At 6:00 p.m. on the Highway 301 overpass over I-4 east of Tampa, they’ll shine the message “asylum for refugees” on lit up signs for motorists to see.
