The Sanctuary Movement

Background
In early 2017, a church member contacted the church about a movement in which churches, mosques, and temples were forming coalitions to help and provide safe space for immigrants and Muslims, African Americans and anyone who feels endangered in this country.

Around the same time, our national organization, the Presbyterian Church (USA), published Sanctuary: A Discernment Guide for Congregations. The guide describes the Sanctuary as “a growing movement of immigrant and faith communities who are standing with groups made vulnerable by the current political climate, including immigrants at risk of deportation.

In the course of discerning our role in this movement, we learned of a potential deportee–Leonor Garcia. a single mother in danger of being separated from her four children–who was requesting sanctuary.

On Sept. 6, 2017, we offered sanctuary to Leonor at Forest Hill Church. She has been living at the church since then and numerous media pieces have shared the story.

How You Can Help
Many who hear Leonor’s story are eager to help. A special contact has been created to handle the inquiries: sanctuary@fhcpresb.org

Others want to help financially. Cash or checks made payable to Forest Hill Church may be made in person or through the mail to Forest Hill Church, 3031 Monticello Blvd., Cleveland Heights, OH 44118. Please indicate that the donation is for our Sanctuary Movement.

Online donations may be made through our Paypal account. To be sure your donation goes to support Leonor and her family, please indicate Sanctuary Movement in the “Add special instructions to seller” field.

The Sanctuary Movement Pledge from the PC(USA)’s Sanctuary Guide
As people of faith and people of conscience, we pledge to resist the newly elected administration’s policy proposals to target and deport millions of undocumented immigrants and discriminate against marginalized communities. We will open up our congregations and communities as sanctuary spaces for those targeted by hate, and work alongside our friends, families, and neighbors to ensure the dignity and human rights of all people.
