What We Do

Moved by faith to participate in the Boston New Sanctuary Movement, we commit to the following:

Education
 

  • We will educate ourselves about issues facing immigrants in our society and about the current movement.
  • We will avail ourselves of resources from the New Sanctuary Movement and welcome the first-hand stories of immigrants themselves who have experienced injustice.
  • We will renew our study of the sacred stories of migration and hospitality, injustice, and hope that already exist in our own faith traditions
  • Seeking also to educate our greater community, we will offer public forums on immigration.

Advocacy

We understand that education alone brings no change if it does not lead to action. Therefore:

  • We will actively and publicly work for comprehensive immigration reform in the United States.
  • We call for an immediate moratorium on all raid and unjust deportations that cause the separation of families until such time as the broken system of immigration laws is fixed.
  • We agree to include our names, our voices, and our selves (or representative members) in public events, various forms of media, and other appropriate venues.
  • We will be a compassionate and persistent voice for justice for our immigrant brothers, sisters, and siblings.
