CRLN’s Immigration Program is rooted in our history of hospitality and advocacy during the sanctuary movement of the 1980s. Since then, our Immigration Program has transformed and expanded through the work and support of our Immigration Organizer, Immigrant Welcoming Congregations (IWC’s), members, and partner organizations. We believe or faith calls us to practice prophetic action that takes the lead from directly-affected communities. Our work is rooted in challenging the criminalization of immigrants, supporting local deportation defense efforts, and holding each other accountable as faith communities committed to working towards the end of detention and deportations for all. As we uplift the call for Expanded Sanctuary, we participate and mobilize our members towards campaigns locally, at the state level, and nationally.
