New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia is an interfaith, multicultural immigrants rights coalition.
We are called by our faith values to build alliances across ethnicity, class, and faith in order to empower affected communities.
We emphasize the telling of stories to give voice to injustices faced by immigrants, documented, and undocumented alike. We educate allied congregations about immigration issues and immigrant congregations about their rights. We walk with families facing deportation. We provide critical skill building and leadership development, creating a united, organized community that fights anti-immigrant policies and works for a more welcoming and just city, state, and country.
We strive to build a Philadelphia that reflects our values of
hospitality, justice, and dignity.
