On January 20, the new Trump administration will be sworn in. They’ve promised to start tearing apart hundreds of thousands of immigrant families that call Oregon home from day one.
We cannot sit by while they target members of our communities.
That’s why we’re uniting for immigrant rights on January 14th at the State Capitol. Join us one week before Trump’s inauguration as a part of a national day of action to build community, celebrate our immigrant heritage, and pledge to protect immigrants from hateful attacks and policies.

Sunday, January 15, 2017
3:00 – 5:00pm*
(doors open at 2:45 – come early!)
First Christian Church
1314 SW Park Ave. / Portland OR 97201
RSVP requested – online here
If you RSVP’d for Jan. 8th, no need to do so again.
* NOTE: Beginning at 5:00pm, we will host a special “Open Space” dialogue for those who want to dive even deeper into exploring Sanctuary. This is the time to bring those specific questions, doubts, or ideas.
We are in this together!
Sanctuary is much more than providing a physical space for someone at risk of deportation….
it is a strategy and set of actions for faith communities, faith-based organizations, and people of conscience.
Join us to learn more about Sanctuary as part of the broader movement for immigrant justice and accompaniment.
