It is free to attend, but registration is required by emailing Maggie Fogarty.

Join us for an interactive workshop on how we are building up the Sanctuary movement in New Hampshire with values of anti-racism, racial justice and liberation for all of us at the heart of our work.

Longtime anti-racist educator and author Chris Crass will be leading this workshop with the goal of helping our congregations and communities of faith come together, share and reflect on our work, deepen our understanding of white supremacy and how we can challenge racism and work for racial justice in the Sanctuary movement here in New Hampshire. Andres Mejia will co-facilitate.

Join us to develop a stronger culture of solidarity to be more effective in our work for racial justice in these times of racism on the rise. If you are already a leader or active supporter in your congregation for Sanctuary or if you are newer and want to get more involved, this workshop is for you.

The workshop is co-sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee, the NH Conference United Church of Christ (Economic Justice Mission Group, Racial Justice Mission Group, Peace with Justice Advocates and Immigration & Refugee Support Group), Concord Friends Meeting, NH Indonesian Community Support, UU Action NH, the NH Council of Churches, New England Yearly Meeting, Brookside Congregational Church and Hanover Friends Meeting.
