Sanctuary Now Ministry News – April 2018

In the summer of 2017, more people had claimed Sanctuary in Colorado than any other state. That fall,  Ingrid, Rosa and Sandra and Aracely began to support one another across the miles. As they gathered our communities together, they identified a hunger to name the concrete steps elected officials can take now to Create a path to Status. The Sanctuary Four began consulting with lawyers, immigrant and faith communities to pull together simple, direct steps at the federal and state level to keep Colorado whole and strong. The People’s Resolution is the result of five months of work and study.

We know a majority of fellow Coloradans, regardless of political party, support creating a path and revamping our immigration system to be just, efficient and transparent. We invite Coloradans to walk with us to Create a Path. Endorse the Resolution and commit to action. Learn more and join us in engaging your local elected officials, businesses and faith communities.

The Resolution calls on the Colorado delegation, the Colorado legislature and the Governor to take steps now. Our families and communities will not wait. peoplesresolution.org. Ingrid could use your support both in signing the petition & helping her to organize the campaign. If you are interested in helping talk to Ingrid at church.

We will be hosting A Volunteer Training. Come learn how to get involved in Sanctuary! The training will cover the various volunteer roles we have as well as how to maintain safety and security for our Sanctuary guest.

The training will be followed by a potluck for all volunteers and for our Sanctuary guest and family. This is your opportunity to build community and interact with others who have been volunteering with us already.
