Citizens Immigration & Refugee Action Committee is hosting FREE TRAINING by Sanctuary Philadelphia, a member of the New Sanctuary Movement. We welcome people of all faiths who want their congregations to take action and leadership in assisting vulnerable members of their community.

The New Sanctuary Movement invites communities of faith to join forces to protect and engage with the undocumented persons among us.

We encourage congregational decisionmakers and active congregants to sign up for this training.  We see the current political climate as the birth of something big and beautiful and powerful: a new way of providing Sanctuary for all.
