I get at least one call per week from Quaker congregations asking about congregational sanctuary. Since the rate of arrests leading to deportation has risen 38 percent and immigrants are afraid to attend immigration check ins because many are being detained and deported, the need for congregations willing to stand up and offer safety and refuge for immigrants is growing. Join our national call on July 13th from 8 to 9:30 pm ET to hear from people across the country who have direct experience with sanctuary.
Conference Call: How to Offer Sanctuary
Thursday, July 13, 2017 @ 8pm EDT // 6pm MDT // 5pm PDT
Presenters will include:
- Pastors and a Quaker leader who have offered sanctuary in their congregation.
- An individual who has lived in sanctuary.
- An attorney who can help participants understand the legal challenges of sanctuary.
- Experienced community organizers at the local and national levels.
The call will be in English with Spanish interpretation on a separate line. Please share with groups and individuals who may be interested.
