NSM emerged in 2007 when a group of clergy and organizers from the immigrant and ally communities began yearning for a bold, faith-rooted vision for immigrant justice. With rising anti-immigrant fervor, an extremist bill passing the House of Representatives and an increase in workplace raids, the group began to organize. Months of conversations in immigrant and faith communities identified a need for interfaith organizing for immigrant rights and leadership.
New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia 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, and hospitality are lived out in practice and upheld in policy.
