Sanctuary Church Movement

In consideration of the possibility of becoming part of the Sanctuary Movement, these are some links that will inform us of the movement and what’s involved should we move ahead on this. There is also a hard copy of this at the Meetinghouse.  Also, in the hard copy book there are pocket-sized informational cards that explain your rights should ICE comes to your door. They are in different languages. Please feel free to take some and give them to people who may be affected by this.
