Join in the conversation about the importance of intersectional work and specifically how your church can become a sanctuary church.
We will hear from faith leaders who are part of sanctuary churches. They will share their church's story. Additionally, immigrants who have sought sanctuary will share their stories and we will hear from a member of the Northern CO Dreamers who is queer and undocumented.
Jennifer Piper, Interfaith Organizing Director of AFSC Colorado will be ready to answer all of your questions.
Potluck Alert: Please provide a main/side dish, salad or dessert if possible (not required).
With “Resilience” as a theme for this holiday, Lisa Wallace, OASOS intern, and Jean Hodges will shine light on scenarios regarding difficult conversations that can arise during the holidays for all ages. Hear past experiences and gain advice to assist in providing a positive outcome.
