Here’s what you’ll learn:
- What it really means for a house of worship to be deemed a sanctuary
- Questions to ask yourself and your congregants
- Legal implications of being a sanctuary
We’ll hear from two Christian leaders of the Sanctuary movement. Reverend Alexia Salvatierra, who led an introductory training at the convening earlier this month, is the co-author of Faith-Rooted Organizing: Mobilizing the Church in Service to the World and the founder of the Faith-Rooted Organizing UnNetwork. Reverend Alison Harrington is the pastor of Southside Presbyterian Church in Tucson, AZ. Reverend Salvatierra’s presentation will be similar to the one she gave at the convening, with Reverend Harrington building on it.
