This week marks the anniversary of Ingrid being in Sanctuary for one year. She has organized a week of action and hopes all will participate!
The week of action started with a fantastic event organized and presented by Motus theater that provided the emotional stories of the four women who have been in Sanctuary in Colorado over the last year or so. This event (on Sunday October 13, 2018) was seen in person by approximately 160 people and many more around the country through the magic of live streaming.
On Monday October 14, 2018, Ingrid and a few friends made a presentation on Facebook Live that has been viewed by over 1200 people. The events of the week were summarized and the need to get more people to sign on to the People’s Resolution was discussed. We are at 1800 and need to get to 5,000 supporters.

Here is a sample script: I am calling to ask you (Senator/Congressman –) to support and endorse the Peoples Resolution that can be found at www.Peoplesresolution.org. The resolution addresses the needs for federal action to create a path for thousands of Colorado residents like Ingrd Encalada Latorre to a permanent legal status. This week marks one year that Ingrid has been living in the sanctuary of a church with her two children. Our current laws do not include a path for Ingrid to apply for status in the US. Unless changes are made she and other mothers will continue to face the possibility of deportation to Peru, a country she left when she was 17. Please take action to allow Ingrid and her family to enjoy the freedom that everyone like her should enjoy.
