University Church has long been passionate about immigration law and doing whatever we can to stand with undocumented persons who risk deportation. Our Guatemala group connects to these efforts on a global scale, but we also have offered SANCTUARY to persons in the past. The question is upon us again, and we’ll vote as a congregation on March 23rd, but check below for some documents on the Sanctuary Movement and University Church’s involvement since 1985.
