Currently, there are two New Hampshire churches that have pledged to be a “level 1” Sanctuary. That is, they will physically house people who are in danger of deportation.
Churches that cannot make this great a commitment by pledge to be “level 2” Sanctuaries. That is, they will provide volunteer support to the “level 1” churches.
Any church may sign the Solidarity pledge here (PDF). So far, about 25 churches and religious bodies in New Hampshire have made this pledge. If you, your pastor or your congregation signs it, please send it back to us and let us know!
Roman Catholics should know that Bishop Libasci issued a letter to his clergy about Sanctuary that should be read before taking any of these steps.
