Sanctuary Congregation Training
DMV congregations will gather to learn how faith communities can provide sanctuary and support to families, friends, and neighbors under threat of discrimination, detainment, and deportation. Facilitated by PICO National Network, the training will address the many ways of providing sanctuary beyond hosting a family; what comes next once you’ve decided to become a sanctuary; and redefining sanctuary to include ALL people who targeted by hate and exclusion. Registration is open to All Souls members and congregations through the DC Metro area.
Mon., Feb. 13, 6-9pm, All Souls Church.
