Sanctuary in the Streets

  • Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center 100 Bigelow Street Holyoke, MA, 01040 United States (map)

WHAT: If you would like to be a part of building our rapid response network you MUST attend a training to learn techniques and philosophy for supporting individuals and families and responding to moments of crisis.

After: 8PM Las Cafeteras will be playing buy tickets so that we can dance and celebrate songs of resistance after!

RSVP: The training is capped at 100 so please be sure to sign up!

Our Goals:
1. Stand in solidarity and accompany families targeted by raids

2. Peacefully disrupt raids – we will bring our presence, songs, prayers, and bodies to peacefully disrupt a raid.

3. Put public pressure on ICE and the Trump Administration to stop all raids and deportations. These raids violate our values and we will not stand silent when ICE comes into a neighborhood and tears apart families. This action will shine a light on raids and uncover the persecution of immigrant communities in the US today.

4. Raids and the threat of raids send a wave of terror through the immigrant community. Sanctuary in the Streets counters this with a message of hope, faith and planned action in immigrant communities.Public
