Sanctuary Everywhere? An UndocuCarolina RoundTable Discussion
February 12, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Since President Trump assumed office, not only has the number of sanctuary churches doubled, but also cities, universities, and even restaurants have organized to declare themselves places of protection for im/migrants. There are six im/migrants living in sanctuary in North Carolina, one of whom, Rosa del Carmen Ortez-Cruz, is only a short walk from campus at the Church of Reconciliation. Another, Samuel Oliver-Bruno, was deported after living in sanctuary at CityWell Church in Durham for eleven months. This roundtable will bring together faith-based activists, community organizers, and artists to discuss the possibilities and limits of these contemporary sanctuary practices.
