Immigrants Rights and Defense

Thank you to all who participated

On Monday, February 20, around 100 people gathered on our Sanctuary training in Syracuse NY. We thank everyone who make it possible and all who attended.  This page will have all the resources shared on that day and will be updated with new ones. Also we will update you on ways you can join our local effort to organize and respond to the attacks against immigrants and refugees in our communities.
