Embracing Sacred Resistance, CLUE-networked clergy have been leading their denominations toward meaningful response to inhumane immigration policies. We stand with the following groups in declaring sanctuary in Los Angeles and beyond!
1. The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles
In December of 2016, with the strong influence of CLUE board member Rev. Francisco Garcia, The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles blazed a trail by declaring itself a "Sanctuary Diocese"-- the first known declaration of its kind in the contemporary Sanctuary movement. This raised some questions: what does it mean to be a "Sanctuary Diocese"? How does it work? In response, the EDLA prepared these FAQ's.
2. The ELCA Lutheran Southwest California Synod
3. The UCC Southern California-Nevada Conference
Declaring Sanctuary is only the beginning, but it is such a significant start! With that in mind, we're only left with one question for the rest of our networks: Who's next?
