Faith communities around the state are reflecting on the history of the Sanctuary Movement and considering how their community can play a role today. With threats against immigrants at an all time high, the need for preparation is urgent. We've compiled some of the best resources we're aware of to help congregations through the discernment process, determining if they'll become a sanctuary congregation, support others who are, or advocate for sanctuary policies and immigrant rights in their communities. We are proud to partner with organizations around the state who are fighting for immigrant rights every day (we've listed them below). We are happy to discuss with you the common concerns and questions that come up regarding sanctuary, and connect you to the local groups who are doing this work in your area. Please be in touch right away to discuss these pressing concerns.
The resource list below is in process - new resources and toolkits are being developed and shared rapidly. If you've found something to be useful and it isn't on our list, please let us know right away!
