What is "Sanctuary Everywhere?"
Sanctuary Everywhere is the simple idea that everyday people can work together to keep each other safe. Sanctuary can mean taking someone into a congregation to protect them from deportation, but more broadly, it's about the community coming together to protect targeted communities from state violence — including immigrants, people of color, Muslims and other targeted religious groups, or LGBTQ people.
