New Sanctuary Movement

The New Sanctuary Movement (NSM), now called Sanctuary 2014, is a growing movement of faith and immigrant communities doing what Congress and the Administration refuse to do: protect and stand with immigrants facing deportation.. Members of the NSM pledge to protect immigrant families who face workplace discrimination or unjust deportation. Religious leaders, congregations and faith-based organizations of all denominations are welcome to join the Movement. 

How to Join

Ask your congregation to sign the pledge. In some congregations the social justice committee has signed, while in others the board signed on, and in others the congregations adopted a resolution. Some congregations choose to go through a process of education and dialogue until they are able to reach consensus.

Please contact the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Director for Congregational Advocacy & Witness (socialjustice @ and let us know if your congregation has signed the pledge.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
