“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”
by Emma Lazarus, on the Statue of Liberty
On entering Sanctuary: “Like my soul had returned to my body.
That’s how my story in sanctuary began.”
by Carmela Apolonia Hernandez, immigrant from Mexico
This timely publication, FACES OF COURAGE, highlighting the accomplishments of the New Sanctuary Movement at its 10th anniversary, coincides with the best opportunity in decades for undocumented immigrants to argue their reasons for achieving asylum.
The new guidelines, recently promulgated by the current administration, make asylum possible but not inevitable. And, at this moment, two families living in Sanctuary in Philadelphia have chosen to exit Sanctuary. New Sanctuary Movement’s effective support has given these two families the chance to give voice in their attempt to seek asylum.
