Grant Asylum to Mother & Children in Sanctuary at Germantown Mennonite Church

On December 13th, 2017, Carmela, Fidel, Keyri, Yoselin and Edwin took the prophetic and bold step to enter into Sanctuary at Church of the Advocate, a member congregation of New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia. “I am taking Sanctuary to fight for my family, to protest our deportation orders and the injustices of the immigration systems. Everybody deserves to live with dignity and safety,” said Carmela.

Carmela’s Path to Victory: In August 2020, Carmela won approval for expedited process of her children’s U-Visas. This is HUGE!

Looking for ways to be a part of their fight for peace and freedom?
