Sanctuary Everywhere Live!
A FREE WEBINAR SERIES ON CREATING SAFER, MORE WELCOMING COMMUNITIES
The AFSC “Calls for Spirited Action” were succeeded by this webinar series.
What is “Sanctuary Everywhere?”
(from https://www.afsc.org/sanctuaryeverywhere )
Sanctuary Everywhere is the simple idea that everyday people can work together to keep each other safe. Sanctuary can mean taking someone into a congregation to protect them from deportation, but more broadly, it’s about the community coming together to protect targeted communities from state violence—including immigrants, people of color, targeted religious groups, or LGBTQ folks.
Here, you’ll find resources for individuals, schools, colleges, congregations, and communities to create safe, welcoming spaces for all people.
We hope to equip thousands of people with tools and training to stop hateful acts and to encourage policies and practices that promote safety and inclusion.
Here are the upcoming (as of posting date) webinars:
