Sanctuary for All: A Day of Prophetic Prayer and Action In Solidarity with Immigrant and Refugee Families

Join faith, community, immigrant and civil rights, worker and labor leaders on Passover and Maundy Thursday--a special and holy time of year for many people--as we gather in sacred resistance to tell ICE to stop tearing families apart.

Immigrant and refugees in Southern California are experiencing heightened anxiety, fear, and suffering. Due to both rhetoric and now enacted immigration enforcement practices under the current administration, many families have experienced separation from their loved ones, or fear that it may come at any moment.

In the midst of this climate of uncertainty and fear, our faith traditions compel us to see, pray, and act to challenge injustice and suffering. We demand that our leaders and institutions build a state where all Californians are safe, regardless of immigration status.

We call on all people of goodwill to create sanctuary spaces wherever possible, and to provide radical hospitality to the immigrant and refugee community.

This event is being planned in partnership with Bend the Arc Jewish Action, Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice, the Episcopal Sanctuary Task Force of the Diocese of Los Angeles, the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, IKAR, and others.

Location information: We will gather at 10 AM at La Placita Olivera. We will march to another location for an interfaith ritual action in observance of the traditions of Passover, Maundy Thursday, and other participating faiths.
