Bay Area Sanctuary Movement Discussion Panel + Sneak Preview of Sanctuary Rising

February 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us for an exclusive film screening and panel discussion fundraising event. Calvary, The Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity (IM4HI) and San Francisco Interfaith Council invite you to a special evening presentation on the Bay Area Sanctuary movement. Program highlights:


  1. Learn from the Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity about ways local congregations have been participating in the sanctuary movement and how you can get involved


·      Watch a sneak preview of clips from director Theo Rigby’s latest project, Sanctuary Rising


  1. Participate in a Q&A feedback session with the director and contribute to this storytelling project about sanctuary while it’s being made


·      Donate to support the Sanctuary Rising project as it nears completion.


About the film: Sanctuary Rising is an intimate portrait of two undocumented mothers who go to dramatic lengths to fend off deportation and separation from their families in the United States. The film follows the stories of Jeanette Vizguerra and Ingrid Encalada, both of whom have chosen to enter Sanctuary at local churches, rather than report to ICE to be deported.


This is a gathering you won’t want to miss. Light refreshments provided.
