SanctuaryNC

Published: February 23, 2017

A collection of resources for groups and individuals seeking to support targeted communities in North Carolina. Currently, most of the resources are aimed at immigrant communities, but we are explicitly and intentionally supportive of all targeted communities, including Black, Muslim, Jewish, and Trans/LGB communities and women & girls.

We have contacts working on Sanctuary efforts in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Durham, Charlotte and Raleigh right now. For more info and contacts in those cities, email: LKhamala@afsc.org.
