Faith in Action Training for Faith Leaders in PA!

New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia (PICC Member)

Since the election, the word “Sanctuary” has been a mobilizing force for thousands of people moved with renewed or newfound urgency for immigrant justice. We are so humbled by the outpouring of support and energy for our faith based organizing. After many requests for training locally, statewide and nationally we have decided to put together a training for faith leaders. We are so excited to share lessons and best practices that we have been able to learn in our 10 years of experience. We welcome people of all faiths who want their congregation to take action and take leadership from the affected community.

Please RSVP!

Berks County Sheriff has announced his plans to authorize his deputies to act as ICE agents, opening the doors to racial targeting and unlawful detentions, just like Sheriff Arapio in Maricopa County, AZ. If he is successful, we can expect Sheriffs across the state to follow suit.

We must take action to prevent this!
