Colorado Sanctuary

Colorado's Sanctuary Movement

Stand with sanctuary leaders Araceli, Ingrid, Rosa, and Sandra

Today, congregations in Colorado are providing sanctuary to more immigrants than any other state.  

A growing number of individuals, faith groups, and organizations are coming together to take a powerful stand against immigration enforcement policies that tear apart families and communities throughout our state.   

We invite you to learn more about the courageous sanctuary leaders who are at the forefront of this movement—and join us in rejecting unjust and inhumane policies and practices. 

Together, we will continue to work for immigration policies that truly respect the dignity and value of all people in our communities.
