North Carolina Sanctuary Movement

Stand with our community members in sanctuary

In North Carolina, community members, congregations, and organizations are taking a powerful stand as part of the sanctuary movement. Together, we're pushing back against immigration policies that tear apart families and communities in 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.

Sign the petitions below to help protect Juana, Jose, and others from deportation. And join us in calling for humane policies that welcome and respect the dignity of all people.
