Supporting Refugees and Providing Sanctuary

“Sanctuary” can include legal assistance, material or financial support, advocacy, education, or temporary physical shelter. Different than sponsoring refugees and asylum seekers in cooperation with the U.S. government and relief agencies, “Sanctuary” — in this context — refers to providing support for undocumented individuals (including “DREAMers”). The legal issues surrounding “Sanctuary” are both unclear and evolving.

Join us on Wednesday, May 10 at 7:00 pm at Temple as we explore the critical questions that need to be asked and answered concerning Sanctuary, including, “where does civil disobedience end and obstruction of justice begin?” and “what concerns do individuals and religious institutions need to consider if they wish to provide Sanctuary and how do they differ?”
