Press Conference on Sanctuary

Date: 
Wed, Sep 6, 2017 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

City:

The Church of the Good Shepherd, United Church of Christ, joint with Washtenaw Congregational Sanctuary, is hosting a press conference to announce resistance to the Trump administration’s plans to deport millions of immigrants, which would separate families and devastate our communities. Since the 1980’s, the Sanctuary Movement has answered the call to welcome the stranger by providing safe haven to immigrants and refugees in need. Since President Trump’s election, faith communities have taken a strong stand to oppose increased enforcement by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
