New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia is an interfaith, multicultural immigrants justice organization.

New Sanctuary Movement builds community across faith, ethnicity, and class in our work to end injustices against immigrants regardless of immigration status, express radical welcome for all, and ensure that values of dignity, justice, hospitality are lived out in practice and upheld in policy.

We work together to bend the arc of the moral universe towards justice and transform our communities into a place where immigrants, families, friends, and neighbors are safe, respected, and welcomed; where economic, spiritual, and emotional wholeness are realized; and where borders and divisions disappear as we build a community welcoming to everyone.
